Hello,
I need to change my network security on my computer to WEP. I already changed my router, but don't even have WEP as an option on my computer.

I'm a little surprised that the computer (or rather Windows) doesn't support WEP because it's still in use for games machines, even though WEP is not the most secure.

The problem may simply be that the terminology in current Windows is less clear than it used to be when things were simply called WPA or WEP -- so you'll have to work out from whatever Windows now calls its various wireless security options which of them is likely to be WEP. Blame the new vagueness on Windows aping Apple -- rather than employing the terminology used by the networking manufacturers.

What OS are you running on your computer?

Which wireless control panel are you using - windows built in, Intel, something else? Maybe a screen shot of your options?
