Devices on a WEP-enabled network use
to encode data.
WEP keys can also be used for authentication.
After creating a set of WEP keys, record and store the keys in a secure location.
You may not be able to retrieve the WEP keys if you lose them.
Caution: If you lose the WEP keys, you will not be able to add a new device
to your network without reconfiguring the WEP settings for every device on
A WEP-enabled network might use multiple WEP keys. Each WEP key is assigned
a key number (such as Key 2). Each device on the network must recognize all the
network's WEP keys and the key number assigned to each WEP key.
