By default, WEP is enabled on most 2Wire model/routers. The WEP key is the 10 digit number in square brackets on the unit.
Ive never used this ap before. So they actually have a static wep key for the box? Thanks for sharing
gstefanick, I'm using a laptop IBM T42 with Win xp pro . I had no problem with using a usb adapter (had its own install disk) but I replaced the internal wireless adapter card because it was less power consuming. The 2 wire router I have has a website 172.16.0.1 for setup where you set it up there and I assumed thats all I needed---not cause windows kept asking for the wep key. Also I knew that the wireless card was ok because I was able to us on non secured wireless at diffrent locations. salgoud
