In the setup wizard on my laptop, after "searching for
wireless networks" and finding it on the next screen when
I enter my WEP code pressing the "next" button sends me
back to "searching for wireless networks" which sends me
to the WEP entry page and so on and so on any tips?

Cancel setup. At that point the software & drivers are installed.

If you are running Windows XP or Windows 2003 uninstall the BNU.

Also if you are running Windows 2003 the Microsoft network adapters will
most likely have major problems as Windows 2003 is not a supported
operating system.

At that point you can just configure your wireless connection manually,
either with the BNU if you are running Windows 98, Windows 98 SE,
Windows 2000, or Windows ME, or in the case of Windows XP SP2 the WZC
service.

If you are running Windows XP I strongly recommend installing SP2 as it
includes several major security enhancements to Windows XP.
