- Configuring the Wi-Fi password of the 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 your Wi-Fi using your WEP key. It will also protect your wireless transmissions / communications from being accessed or received by other users.
To set up WEP Wireless Security on your Wireless-G ethernet bridge, follow the steps below.
Access the Wireless-G ethernet bridge web-based setup page. If you are using a Windows®, click here. For Mac®, click here.
On the SSID field, enter your Wi-Fi name.
NOTE: The Wi-Fi name of your Wireless-G ethernet bridge must be exactly the same as your router. If you are uncertain with your Wi-Fi name, click the Site Survey button.
On the Network Type, select Infrastructure.
Select Enable and click the Edit Security Settings button.
A pop-up window will appear. Click OK to continue.
When the WEP Encryption window appears, select the same Default Transmit Key as your router. In this example, 1 is selected.
Select the same WEP Encryption level either 64-Bit (10 hex digits) or 128-Bit (26 hex digits). In this example, 64-Bit (10 hex digits) is selected.
Enter your Wi-Fi WEP key based on the Default Transmit Key selected.
When the web-based setup page appears, click Site Survey. When the Site Survey window appears, click Refresh and select your Wi-Fi name.
You should now have configured the Wi-Fi password of your Wireless ethernet bridge.
