Make and model of laptop and have you changed the encryption on the laptop to use the new settings? Also, no version of WEP is as good as WPA or WPA2, change to that instead.

Only 802.11b? Are you sure the adaptor supports 128 bit WEP? Try 64 or 40 bit. Next to useless in terms of security, I would advise you to invest in a WPA capable adaptor.
I can't locate that specific model on the Compaq website so I can't find out what the specs are. You may benefit from running some system info utilities to find out what the hardware is capable of.
