ap350 and wep and dhcp

Any one els have problem with

getting ip by dhpc while you have

enable the wep 128 on the ap

and then enable wep 128 on a client

If i disable the wep on the client

i get an ip and when i connect to the

ap and log on to it, i see that

wep is enable, but , why can i connect

to it when i have disable the wep

on my client , it shouldnt work

or is it someting i dont understand ?

and on the ap , i can choose optional and mandantory

wep , whats the diff ?

maybe its easier to use mac filtering ? but

is that any secure still , some one can sniff packets i guess ?

regards Thomas

Re: ap350 and wep and dhcp

That is because your AP is allowing Open Authentication. WIth Open authentication, even if the WEP key is not configured you will be allowed access to the network. Choose Mandatory option on the AP and then you will see the difference. Clients with no wep will be denied access to the network.

I think your problem with not getting DHCP when WEP key is on (both AP and client) is probably is a typo error in the WEP key. Please doublecheck the WEP key entered on both AP and ACU utility.

Re: ap350 and wep and dhcp

it seems to work when i change wep to 64bit , but it should work with 128 i guess ?

Re: ap350 and wep and dhcp

i was having the exact same problem before i changed my wep keys on both ends. check your wep key.. you can get a wep key generator by searching google for '128 bit wep key generator' put that new key in and BEFORE you apply it to your access point, read and type in the new wep key in your clients. read and type two at a time. mark it off by twos if necessary, but make sure that they are both exactly the same.
