If the two machines are exhibiting the problem at the same site are
you sure it is not a problem with the router or the environment, and
it is just coincidence that it started when you upgraded?
Alternatively have you tried WPA? WEP is no longer recommended so I
don't suppose much testing goes into it. It is better to move to WPA
if your kit supports it.
