iMac - iMac wireless connection problem

Just wondering if anyone can help me with my problem. I just bought a 20" iMac and I am trying to get it to connect wirelessly to my DSL network. I'm using Verizon DSL, with the router that they gave me- Westell VersaLink 327W. AirPort sees my network, but my network's security is enabled so when I go to connect with AirPort, I type in my WEP password. I get the error that there's "... an error joining the AirPort network." I can connect to the internet when I'm running an ethernet cable. Also, AirPort sees a linksys that isn't mine- probably a nearby neighbor's, but the signal is very low.

I've called both Apple and Verizon, with no success.

A few people have said that the Westell VersaLink 327W is NOT compatible with the new iMac. Is this true? If not, can someone pleeeease help me connect wirelessly to my network?

thanks in advance!

Try putting a $ in front of the WEP key
