Help with WEP and Windows XP

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Brandon Riffel, Nov 5, 2004.

  1. We are trying to set up a wireless network for students to use at a
    remote college campus. We are using a Cisco 1200 AP, and would like
    the students to be able to connect to the network by entering only the
    SSID. We would however like to make all traffic between the AP and
    the clients be encrypted. We don't want the students to be required
    to enter a 26 digit hex key to get online. We need to allow
    connections from all wireless cards regardless of manufacturer with B
    or G radios.

    In the Windows XP wireless configuration there is a box that says "The
    key is provided for me automatically". This is exactly what we'd like
    to do. Offer WEP encryption (which I relized isn't as secure as it
    used to be) without needing to give students any more than just an
    SSID to connect.

    If anybody has any tips, suggestions or other comments please feel
    free to email me.

    Thank you,
    Brandon Riffel
