    • Note: Although you can enter a WEP encryption key in HEX format, it's generally easier to use the ASCII format and enter a phrase that's easier to remember.

  3. Select the Key field (1 - 4) where you entered the WEP encryption key (Key1 in the example above). [Show Me]

  4. Enter the new WEP encryption key. If you are using 128-bit encryption, you must have 13 characters. If you are using 64-bit encryption, you must have 5 characters. You may want to create a phrase that is easy to remember.
