Default WEP keys, beyond WEP?

What solutions are there for greater security, which can be installed
on a laptop?


You'r looking for VPN software, or a newer wireless card for the laptop
that does WPA.
A Virtual Private Network is one where all the traffic is encrypted before
sending over an unsecured link.

If your router supports this, then it's a perfect solution, as though the
WEP key may be crackable, it doesn't get anywhere if the router does
not accept packets that are not going over the VPN.
