WEP

If you decide to use WEP as your security method, skip Step 12 to Step 14.

Step 17:
Skip the Passphrase value and manually enter the value in the Key 1 to Key 4 fields.

NOTE: If you are using 64-bit WEP encryption, then each key must consist of exactly 10 hexadecimal characters. If you are using 128-bit WEP encryption, then the key must consist of exactly 26 hexadecimal characters. Valid hexadecimal characters are "0" through "9" and "A" through "F".

Step 18:
For the Authentication value, default is set to Open System, for which the sender and the recipient do NOT use a WEP key for authentication. You can also choose Shared Key, when the sender and recipient use a WEP key for authentication.
