How to use the Client Encryption Manager (CEM) to configure WEP

Core Issue

Using the CEM to enable WEP.


Use the Client Encryption Manager (CEM) utility to set a Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key for your client adapter. 

The default password is Cisco (uppercase C followed by lowercase isco). On older versions of CEM, try the default password Aironet.

It is recommended that you change the password. If the default passwords do not work, or you forget the password, you must reinstall the CEM utility.
