well i get the schools WEP and they figured out they could not hide it like in Vista/XP so i needed to downgrade to something more crappy.. now if they could do what they can on Vista/Xp that would be great.

This is about the best answer I found for this, it has to do with setting up non admin accounts for the wireless connections. You could also use the mac filter on the router to keep out unautherized access. There may also be a way to do with using the group policy editor.
