WEP Settings

  Nessie 23:45 12 Dec 2004

I have just configured a wireless modem/router. Have set the mac numbers in the router. What I want to know is whether the WEP number is individual to the network or does each wireless divice have its own number. Thanks

If all the devices on your network do not use identical WEP encription keys they will not be able to talk to each other. You must make sure they all use the same key - that's the whole point, one device encrypts with a key that makes it safe (well safeish) as the only devices that can decrypt are those with the same key.
