WEP (64bit) or WPA

  Ventad 10:04 04 Apr 2010

Never had to use wireless before as I only had one desktop computer, now we have purchased a laptop I have had to set it up on a new Thomson TG585v7 router. The question is as I was setting it up it got to the point of choosing the security for it and the programme pointed me to the WEP (64bit)(HEX) which I accepted. Looking at different threads most seem to say WPA should be the better options any comments would be welcomed please.

WEP is insecure so you should use WPA2 PSK

Thanks for the quick responce, might have to come back on how to change it if I have problems.
