Entering a WEP hex key for preferred AirPort network
Authored by: bnew on Feb 27, '06 08:12:01AM

This works because Apple offers 3 ways to enter a WEP key - regular text, which it converts to hex, ASCII and hex. To a computer, 0x or $ before a series of letters & numbers designates it as hex (hexadecimal, or base 16). This is a standard method of designating hex which has been in use for decades.
