Enabling WEP with passwords on a Linksys BEFW11S4
Authored by: spiritquest on Mar 19, '04 07:35:54AM

OK, I'm just going to clarify a couple of things here, as I couldn't work out the exact method of enabling this hint .. it's been bugging me for ages. I had to upgrade my firmware as it was ancient, but the new features are worth it.

1) Follow instructions above to generate your key choose (128bit)
2) Choose to connect to your WiFi hub by selecting its SSID
3) when it asks you for a password, slect the drop down menu and select 128-bit Hex
4) Enter the code that was created when generating the key - if you don't want to have to inpout this long code every time you want to connect to your hub, select add to keychain. (as noted in hint above) - u can't paste the code into this box as its protected and you'll be forced to type it in each time.

thats pretty much it - I spent ages trying to put my passphrase into the password box, and used variations of the '$' method. It isn't difficult to get this working but as its been stated it isn't obvious either. Thanks to the original poster, as i would have been lost otherwise!

WEP ON.
