No, I have not tried turning WEP off, but on the same machine booted in tinycorelinux I can connect, albeit after a couple of attempts and not using NetworkManager.
Also on three other laptops (none of which use the same hardware) and an iPhone there are no problems connecting.
I'll try rmmod/modprobe ipw2100 (google suggests this might work) and if not, I guess it's ndiswrapper...
