      Sagem F@st 2504 WEP Setings On Vista

      Recently got a Nintendo DS and tried to connect to its Wifi service.. Nintendo Wifi uses WEP so tried to adjust router settings to WEP with no success.. Sky support say that my operating system Vista is 128 bit yet WEP on the router requires 32 bit.. Can get no feedback from Sagem..

      There's no such thing as 32-bit WEP.

      The original WEP encryption used a 64-bit key and is sometimes called 40-bit WEP. There is also an 128-bit version which is sometimes called 104-bit WEP.

      My V1 router has both 64-bit and 128-bit WEP. I'm guessing yours has too.

      The operating system on your computer has absolutely nothing to do with the Router settings for WEP. I can set mine using 32 bit XP, 64 bit XP, Visat, Linux 32 bit or Linux 64 bit.

      James67 points out that 64 and 128 bit WEP infact needs only 40 or 104 bits setting as the other 24 are set by the original protocol for WEP. And those 24 bits are where the weakness is in WEP and allow hackers to break the encryption.
