Simple solution: Log into your router and switch WEP encryption to WPA.

WEP was essentially replaced by WPA about 5 years ago. WPA is easier to use, more secure and provides a faster connection. Additionally, since WPA has a very specific standard for its passphrase authentication, the kinds of issues you are experiencing as essentially negated.

Since WEP can be hacked in less than 5 minutes with readily available tools, if you're still using WEP, you might as well be running no security at all.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
