Some new laptops and tablets are not compatible with WEP because it's very poor security.

Set your router to use WPA or WPA2 instead. They are both stronger encryption than WEP.

If your router does not have WPA or WPA2 you'll have to buy a new one that does.

It's more a driver issue than a tablet incompatibility with WEP.

But phil22 is right about stronger encryption with WPA/WPA2.
When ever possible, use the strongest encryption you can, which is at this time WPA2.
