I have a Linksys WRT54G Broadband Router with a Belkin 54G Desktop Network Card installed into my computer. Now the problem I have, is when I enabe WEP 128bit encryption I cannot connect to the internet. When WEP is not activated everything works fine! I have upgraded firmware but still no joy. Does anybody have the answer.

Thank-you in anticipation.

I would think that you have not entered the passphrase correctly in the client PC,.

I have the same problem at home. The cause is because the network card and the router are a different brand.

Apparently, different brands interpret the passkey differently. What you need to do is to type in the passkey on the router. Then, copy the HEX code and input that in your card settings.

That should work.
