The Cnet Networking Forum advises to discontinue use of WEP no matter how many bits. The troubles are now legendary and it is so insecure that simple software let's folk onto a WEP (protected?) network in about 2 minutes. And even if you add MAC filters, this only slows them down a few seconds.
Fix? Move to WPA or WPA2 PSK.
I feel stupid for asking this, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong. I have my router set up with WEP 128-bit wifi security. When I go to the wireless security screen on the router admin page, it gives me a 26-digit hex number. I go over to the B6500, but when I try to enter it, it stops me at 25-characters. Aren't all 128-bit WEP keys 26 characters? Am I entering the wrong thing?
I assume I'm doing something or there'd be a lot of people on here complaining about this Any help appreciated!
