I'm using a Linksys wireless router for Internet connection not an Airport that's why your settings are different.I don't know how is working the MP with Airport.

Well, I've reinitialised the Airport Base Station and set the WEP to
40 bits, rather than 128.

I've changed the Internet Setup to use a hexadecimal WEP and have
copied the hex code from the Airport Admin Utility.

I've restarted the MessagePad.

The results are, however, exactly the same.

Does anyone use a Lucent Technologies card to conenct wirelessly to
the Internet via an Airport Base Station? And do you use MacOS X
(either Tiger or Leopard)? If so, can you please email me screenshots
of the relevant Airport settings, together with the settings you are
using for the Lucent card on the MessagePad, please?

Failing that, the next step will be to scrub my MessagePad clean and
start that afresh.

Use hexadecimal connection.I'm very sorry for this late response but
it was Saturday evening.Don't use string.I have the same Lucent like
yours.After you make the settings restart your MP.Your device
address can be or 101 or 102 depends if you have other
devices connected using wifi.For my MP I discover the address using
a 3com Ethernet card that show me for 1 second the proper address
number.I have 2 MP and each one has a different address :one has 100
and the other one has 102( I mean the last 3 digits in the
address)because I have also a computer connected wifi and it's
address is don't forget to restart the MP after
applying new settings.If you have any troubles just ask me.
