How do i change from a WPA to WEP??

Maybe this is easy, but I don't want to mess anything up.  I need it to switch it to be able to have my son's DSI connect to the internet.  I have a WRT54G linksys router (not sure if that matters) and am using windows vista.  Have tried things that I have found on other sites, but it hasnt worked, and I end up screwing something up.  Anyone able to give me some help?

 

Thank you!

Access your routers admin pages and select wireless security tab.  Now change the setting to what you want.  Connect with your computer and it will ask for the WEP Key.  Use Key 1.

You can configure the router manually for this. Open http://192.168.1.1 on internet explorer. Leave the username blank and type admin on password.

If the default password admin is not working, then you need to reset the router back to factory default settings then reconfigure your router.

Note: If you reset the router back to factory defaults, you may lose the internet connection, hence you need to configure the router from start.
