Limited or no connectivity to WAP11 while using WEP

Setting up my wifi network with an old BEFSR41 Router and WAP11 wireless access point. Have laptop with XP Pro that connects just fine without encryption but as soon as I try to use WEP I get the "Limited or no connectivity" error.  When prompted, I type in the same passphrase as the one I used for the WEP 128bit encryption while setting up the WAP11 for my network. Am I missing a step?

Thanks,

LC

Hi. Welcome to the Cisco Home Community forums.

 

Here's my suggestion: try generating the keys with the passphrase you're using. You do that on the WAP. Then use the keys on your wireless device, instead of the passphrase.

 

Hope this helps.

Well Primus,

I can't believe it was that simple, spent quite a few hrs trying to sort it out. It can be tough getting old. FYI, I did try entering that key earlier but also added spaces between the pairs... DOH!

Thanks Again
