My MacBook Pro connects wirelessly but I want to connect it via WEP, how do I go ahead and set the WEP?
Yes I put the password in but it does not connect unless I deactivate WEP from my other computer to use.Did you already configure your router to use WEP?
The airport will not prompt you for WEP/WPA/WPA2 password unless you've actually specified that you want to use it on the router itself.
Who set up your wireless router? Get them to help you. If it was you, then make sure the Router is using WEP. If it is then you maybe try putting in the password with a '$' as the first character. Either you're a non-english speaker or are just rushing but you describe the problem poorly. You shouldn't have to turn off another computer to get WEP to work. They're totally unrelated.
WEP is more compatible though than WPA since WEP is older. I do agree with the WPA is more secure comment completely, but my Nintendo DS doesn't do WPA and who wants to krack mine/or the OP's network anyway?Excuse my ignorance...but what's the $ for when entering the WEP key?
