How do i connect WEP and a WPA-PSK client to 1240AP
I have wireless terminals that can only support 128bit Wep, but new clients support WPA-PSK. I need some help to get both clients to connect to 1242 AP's concurrently. Both clients have currently different SSID but there is no security restrictions once connected to network.

You'll need to create two SSIDs that each have different encryption methods. You'll also need to create two separate VLANs, one for each SSID.
1. Using the GUI, go to Services -> VLANs (using the menu on the left) and create your two VLANs. Be sure to check whichever one is your native.
2. Go to Security -> SSID Manager and create your two SSIDs there. Be sure to assign each one to a VLAN using the drop-down box. Scroll down and click "apply" (the one that's not ALL the way at the bottom).
3. Go to Security -> Encryption Manager to set the security for each VLAN/SSID. For WEP, select WEP Mandatory and enter the key on this page. For WPA, select Cipher - AES CCMP + TKIP (unless you only want one or the other). You won't set the key on this page, so simply click "apply".
4. Go back to the SSID Manager and select your WPA profile. Scroll a ways down and you'll see "Client Authenticated Key Management". Enter the WPA key here, select WPA and Mandatory, and scroll down to click "apply" again.
I hope that helps! Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
