Pretty much all wireless routers/APs will handle either 64 bit or 128 bit WEP. Here's a handy site

Getting it all to work together though is the interesting bit - 802.11b & g are standards, but some hardware is more standard than others.

Take for example my recently dismantled wireless LAN. My landlord was using an Atmel-based Belkin card to try to connect to my Netgear router. Both my Prism-based Netgear card, my Atmel-based D-Link card and an old Realtek-based unbranded card would happily talk to the router. The Belkin card simply refused to pick up the network. It did, however, pick up the next door neighbour's Linksys router.
It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion...
