WPA or WEP?

I have noticed on some questions references to WPA or WEP as security settings for routers.
I know mine is set to WAP (as advised by Netgear Support line), but what one is best/safest?

wpa2....not everything supports it but is the safest...wpa and wpa2 are very similar and wpa is v.hard to crack
with wep it can be broken in under an hour
