Wireless Problem

My IT Manager is wanting me to find out some way of implementing the same WEP Key to all the Apple Airstaion Extremes so that staff can walk around the building without breaking connection. At present you have to disconnect from each airstation then reconnet to the next one. This is unfeasable as some of the staff can barely switch on the laptops. We are running a domain with over one hundred staff and over 25 Airstations and the idea is that we put in the WEP key once and then the laptops (Centrino models running XP Pro) all do the rest automatically. Otherwise we end up running round like headless chickens when a teacher moves room or building.

Just to complicate things some of the laptops are pretty old and are using Win2K and Buffalo or 3Com aircards.
