      Why use 'WEP' when your router is already setup for WPA?
      Look at the router pages ( 192.168.0.1 login= admin password= sky ), go to wireless settings tab and your WPA key should already be in at the bottom of THAT page, Place this 'key' into WPA-PSK in the 360. ( you should in theory change this key when you get your router but up to yourself whether you do or not. )

      You have a 'PEBKAC' problem

      Have a read of Russ's post above. If you must use wireless, an ethernet cable is better and cheaper than MS's ripoff wireless adapter, then at least use the more secure protocol.
