Default Lenovo T61, WFI, WEP, DHCP problem

I have a new Lenovo T61 with a built in wireless card, it is a Intel 4xxx (can't remember the exact number right now. I can get it to connect to my Linsys WRT110 that it shows connected but it won't pull a DHCP IP address using WEP, if I change it to WPA it works fine. I also tried it with no security and it works fine.

I tried installing the latest drivers and Intel software but it still has the same problem.

I am most likely going to just use WPA since it is more secure but I really need to get it working with WEP because I may need to use it at a hotel or cafe and they might use WEP.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what is causing it to not work with WEP and how to fix it?
