[24hoursupport] Re: Will firewall be sufficient if WEP is disabled?

When I go to wireless settings in my control panel, I click for WEP, I select 
128bit encryption, I type in a passphrase, click 'generate' and 4 keys are 
listed. When I did it earlier today, the keys were all the same.  I use the 
passphrase to log into the network using my laptop.  Sometimes when I try to 
connect, I cannot generate an IP and sometimes when I do get an IP for my 
laptop, I still cannot connect to the internet.  
This is what I used for help:
To answer your question, I do not have a problem connecting to the router's 
settings page on my PC.
Thank you for your input.

First, if it supports 128 bit, use that instead. It's MUCH stronger encryption.

That said, I think you're still confusing a passphrase with an
encryption key. The 26 digit key you see in the panel is a key. Make
sure that you're not trying to put that into your setup in Windows as
a passphrase.

You might need to reboot after setting it to get everything in sync.

After a reboot, can you connect to the router's settings page?
