    Last week, I installed a WRT54GS for my mother's use, connecting it to a cable modem. Achieving connectivity could not have been simpler, but then I decided to activate WEP, since she's in a rather crowded urban setting. I don't use security on our home router, because we're remote enough from civilization there's no reason.

    However, I could NOT get her Mac iBook to log in to the router choosing "WEP Password." There are several other choices, 128 bit ASCII and 128 bit hex. I haven't been able to find any reference whatever in the Linksys documentation as to which type of WEP is used by the WRT54GS.

    Can anyone shed light on this issue?
