    We're trying to make our home network more secure so we have finally enabled WEP security. We had four keys generated, but none of them seem to work as the password when trying to access the network. This is over Wi-Fi by the way, 802.11b/g. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks! :)

    Edit: By the way, it's a Linksys router if that means anything.

    Make sure to generate a 128 bit hex key.

    When you get the password dialog in OS X use the drop down menu to select 128 bit hex.

    Enter the key and you should be good to go.

    Unless you have to use WEP, the WPA is a much better alternative.
