do you obtain error message(s) in your 'dmesg' related to DriverLoader 
while you are trying to configure your wireless interface?

You could try without WEP to see if this is the source of the problem. 
You could also try to use your distribution network configuration tool 
to configure your wireless interface. Since you are using Fedora Core 3 
according to your first post, the network configuration tool can be 
launched with the 'neat' command in a shell.

If you require more assistance, please send us at support at linuxant.com 
the output of the following commands entered in a root shell while you 
are close to the access point you are trying to connect to.

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
iwlist eth1 scanning
ifdown eth1
ifup eth1
ifconfig -a
ip route
ip addr
cat /etc/resolv.conf
ping www.linuxant.com -I eth1 -c 5
ping -I eth1 -c 5
tail -n 30 /var/log/messages
