Can't connect to Clear Voyager via WIFI?

I signed up with Clear about a week ago and got the Voyager hotspot. It works great with my laptop, I'm using it right now. When I try to connect another laptop, however, it won't connect. (Running windows XP) The laptop detects the clear hotspot, but it never connects. It just says "connecting" forever. The laptop connects to other WIFI networks just fine...

Any idea what might be wrong? I tried talking to Clear support but I might as well ask a potted plant.

Maybe your security is set up for WPA2 and your XP machine is only capable of WEP. Try turning off security for testing, or at least back off to WEP for testing.

Its very likely this. Dumb security down to open WEP. If you don't want to dumb it down then consider a USB WI-FI card.
