- Setting-Up 128-Bit WEP Wireless Security on a Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits or a 128-bit WEP key with 26 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to a wireless network using your own WEP key. It will also protect your wireless transmissions/communications from being accessed or received by other users.
To setup WEP Wireless Security on your Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge
Connect the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge to your router using an Ethernet cable.
Access the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using Mac computer to access the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge’s web-based setup page, click here.
On the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge’s web-based setup page, look for the SSID field and enter the wireless network’s SSID on the SSID field.
Under Network Type, select Infrastructure.
Under Security, select Enable and click Edit Security Settings.
Select the same Default Transmit Key as your router. In this example, we selected 1.
Under WEP Encryption, select 128-Bit(26 hex digits).
Enter the wireless network’s WEP key based on the Default Transmit Key selected. Since we selected 1, we’ll enter the WEP key in the Key 1 field.
On the Setup Page, click Apply and you’re done setting-up 128-bit WEP on the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge.
