How to update a modified WEP key
Authored by: quangtonthat on Feb 15, '06 07:43:31PM

WPA is the way to go. It is so much easier to manage and safer, probably gives you better performance than the out-dated and unsafe WEP.

How to update a modified WEP key
Authored by: schaps on Feb 16, '06 07:20:43AM

yes, we all know that, but WPA is still relatively 'new' and there is a lot of older equipment out there that is not WPA capable. For example, our small school's wireless network.

We have 24 teacher PCs with old D-Link 802.11b wireless cards in them which cannot do WPA, nor be firmware upgraded, so they do 128 bit WEP until funds can be secured to upgrade all the cards. None of the teachers have file sharing enabled, and the rest of the network is the eMac lab running Tiger, so I am not too worried about hackers. At least, I cannot lose sleep over it, because I cannot help it right now. Convincing them to get the eMac lab was my big success, though, but we spent the whole grant/gift money on that and had to skimp on the teachers' network.
