    Hey everybody,

    When I connect my Tohsiba Satellite Pro 4600 via the build-in wireless network card without WEP to an AP, there is no problem, connection is establische and everything is working fine.
    When I use WEP, I can't make any connection anymore.
    Is there a solution to use 128 Bit WEP encryption on a Thosiba Pro 4600 laptop with the build-in WLAN.



    Thanks in advanced

    What WLan card do you use?

    As far as I know the notebook should be equipped with the Wireless LAN / WiFi Standard: 802.11b ORiNOCO Mini PCI card.
    This card supports security 64 WEP or 128 RC4.

    Everything looks like you WLan card doesn’t support the same security standard like your WLan router. You should understand that this WLan card is an oldie… about 7 years old.

    I think the best solution is to use the external USB WLan stick which would support the newest encryption standards…

    Bye

    Juan28,

    Thanks for your replay,

    I was already a little bit afraid for this.
    I use as AP a linksys WAG54G V2, at the moment I don't know if this linksys supports WEP 128 RC4.
    Anyway, I think the easiest way is to buy me a external USB WLan stick

    Thanks
