This is my first post, excuse the story detail, just trying to give a complete picture. I have the following: - LinkSys Cable Modem BEFCMU10, Firmware 126.96.36.199.3 - LinkSys Wireless-G Router WRT54GS, Firmware 2.07.1 - LinkSys Wireless-G USB Adapter WUSB54G I also have a HP psc 2510 wireless printer and have Norton Internet Security. The installation went smooth with everything; Cable Modem, Router, 1 desktop hardwired into Router, 4 desktops with wireless adapters, 1 HP psc 2510 wireless printer and each computer has Norton Internet Security 2005. The desktops are Windows XP Professional with SP-2. I have done the following for security: - Changed the Router default password - Changed the default SSID name - Set DHCP from default (I think it was 50) to 5. I have 5 desktops, printer is static IP - Enabled Wireless MAC Filter â€œPermit Onlyâ€ my MAC addresses - Set WEP to 64 Bit - The Router is set to â€œMixed Modeâ€, not G. The HP psc 2510 will not run G-Mode - On the desktops, I set WEP 64 Bit 10 hex: Preferred Networks Properties Wireless Network Key Network Authentication: Open Data Encryption: WEP Entered the Network Key Unchecked â€œThe key is provided for me automaticallyâ€ Finally, my 2 questions: - When I set WEP to 128 Bit 26 Hex, there is a considerable slowness, any way to increase the speed with 128? - When I disable SSID, my farthest wireless desktop, 52â€™ feet away canâ€™t connect, I tried the LinkSys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G, but, this will not use WEP. Other than moving the desktop closer or hardwiring down the hall, any ways to disable SSID and have this connect? I called LinkSys and HP about the 128 slowness, HP was not able to help, LinkSys said they have seen this before with Wireless Network Mode "Mixed". Sorry, I did not mention this before. The HP psc 2510 will not run "G Only" Mode, I had to set the Router to Mixed, but, that has to be a LinkSys thing with LinkSys 128 Slower in Mixed Mode. Thanks. Any other security or speed suggestions are welcome.
