128 bit encription for WEP

I have spent hours trying to get the 128 bit encryption on my 4700 series. We have Cisco wireless access points here in the hospital and abot 20 of these devices arriving soon for the doctors use. They need access over the wireless net for dictation purposes. Everyone seems to say just enter it. Where is the Key indes used. On the various laptops, I have to enter the first half of the encryption code on the first line, and the second half on the second line. Is something like this necessary on the ipaq. Thanks

Should just be: turn WiFi on, WiFi Manager -- tap Configure -- tap on name of your network, then on Authentication (or Authentication Key). Then set Shared/WEP, uncheck the box "Key is provided automatically", and enter your key. Remember, the iPaq wants the actual key in hexadecimal, not the passphrase. And you'll need to know which of the 4 standard WEP keys the one you're entering is. Good luck.

Find the WEP Key for wireless system.


Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but this is what I did when I set up my Belkin (well, before I wanted more security and went WPA)...

1. Log into your Router or Access Point.

Open your web browser and type in IP address of the Router or Access Point. (The Router default is 192.168.2.1, the 802.11g Access Point is 192.168.2.254 ). Log into your router by clicking on the "Login" button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. You will be asked to enter your password. If you never set a password, leave the password field blank and click "Submit".

Click the "Wireless" tab on the left of your screen. Select the "Encryption" or "Security" tab to get to the security settings page.

2. Select "128-bit WEP" from the drop-down menu.

3. After selecting your WEP encryption mode, you can type in your hex WEP key manually, or you can type in a passphrase in the "Passphrase" field and click "Generate" to create a WEP key from the passphrase. Click "Apply Changes" to finish. You must now set all of your clients to match these settings. A hex (hexadecimal) key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A-F and 0-9. For 128-bit WEP, you need to enter 26 hex keys.

For example:

C3030FAF4BB2C3D44BC3D4E7E4 = 128-bit key

4. Click "Apply Changes" to finish. Encryption in the Router is now set. Each of your computers on your wireless network will now need to be configured with the same security settings.

How do I install my WEP number


go to 192.168.1.1 If you have already configured the router for internet access, then just click on "configuration" otherwise, go through the steps to configure it according to your ISP's instructions, then click on configuration. then wireless. Then go down to privacy settings.

Pick which authentication type to use ( I recomened open)
Then pick the highest encyption meathod that all of your wireless devices are capable of. 64-bit, 128-bit or 256-bit.

Most devices use 64 and 128 bit, but if all of your devices use 256, then use it. Then create a wireless key to use.
If key select is selected, the WEP Key is treated as a string of text characters, and the number of characters must be either 5 (for 64-bit encryption) or 13 (for 128-bit encryption) or 29 (for 256-bit encryption).

If not selected, the WEP key is treated as a string of hexadecimal characters, and the number of characters must be either 10 (for 64-bit encryption), 26 (for 128-bit encryption), or 58 (for 256-bit encryption). The only allowable hexadecimal characters are 0-9 and A-F. (My hint is to use hexadecimal, it is eaiser)

If you would like to create a new WEP key go to this site (http://www.powerdog.com/wepkey.cgi) and type in a passphrase and click generate. it will generate 4 64-bit keys and 1 128-bit key.

choose the best bit 64 or 128 bit, then copy and paste it into the correct key box(es)

When you changed the WEP encryption from 64 bit to a stronger 128 bit encryption the encryption code gets changed and when you changes it back to 64 bit the new 64 bit encryption code will be different to the old 64 bit encryption code, that is why your laptops cannot connect to the router. The laptop wireless card needs to be configured with the new 64 bit encryption code before it can connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you configure the wireless router with WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is a much stronger encryption method than the old WEP encryption.

Are trying to enter the WEP key and it is not allowing any more the 5 characters (please input 64 bit WEP encryption and Five ASCII Characters))


It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

di614_128wep.gif

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

    The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    Encryption


    The Access Point determines encryption. This is because the access point provides the path into the network. In infrastructure mode (all computers communicate through the access point) the AP is configured for 64- or 128-bit encryption. In 64-bit, WEP key 1 through 4 must be selected. In 128-bit, there is only one WEP key. The client computers must now be configured to the same WEP settings in order to connect to the network. If the WEP settings on a client are not correct, the client will show that it is connected to an access point, but no data can be exchanged, i.e.. no Internet browsing is possible, etc. 802.11b Ad-hoc differs only in that each computer must use identical WEP settings. There is no AP in the system to drive the WEP.
