WEP Support for 802.1x (WEP, or WEP)

Hi guys,

Is this a silly question?

WPA2 supports the 802.1x framework - This is correct right?

WEP does not support 802.1x - Is this correct?

In certain docs I read, it says such things as

The basic 802.1X protocol provides effective authentication regardless of whether you implement 802.11 WEP keys or no encryption at all. Most of major wireless LAN vendors, however, are offering proprietary versions of dynamic key management using 802.1X as a delivery mechanism.

When they mention WEP keys here, for 802.1x, they are not talking about Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) are they?

Can someone please confirm?

Many thx indeed,

Ken
