I am running Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Desktop

I am connecting to my home Wi-fi using wep key, like I do with all of my other devices. There is no issue with the wi-fi as none of my other devices have this problem.

Every 5 minutes give or take, I will get a request to enter the WEP key for my network. even though I am connected with no problems. Through trial an error I have learnt that choosing either connect, or cancel will give exactly the same result. Another notification saying Wireless disconnected - Yet I am still connected, everything is working. I just continually get the request to enter my WEP key, I am connected the whole time, despite the alerts I receive. Its quite irritating having to have to stop working on whatever I am working on at the time, every 5 minutes just to get rid of the WEP key pop up.

I have also checked my drivers, I have the correct one for my wireless. and it is working and active.

Has anyone else had this issue and know how to resolve it? Hope someone can help.

It sounds like the settings aren't saving properly; open up the network connections menu (you can find it in the dash search menu) and move to the wireless tab. Remove the connection which has been created, click the add button and enter the settings for your wireless network. Click save and try restarting the machine.
