    So explain to me as you would to a complete moron how to create a wireless network with WEP encryption. I have an iMac running Leopard and my router is a D-Link DI-524. Baby steps please, I have no freaking clue what I'm doing.

    also, you want to be connected to the router via ethernet whilst performing this.

    WEP encryption can be cracked in under 2 minutes. It doesn't matter how strong your password is, 2 minutes is all it takes.

    Use WPA, WPA2 if you can.
