Can't get my WAP (linksysWAP11) to prompt for WEP pass-code as opposed to WEP Key

    Running 802.11B

    When attempting to connect to the network it prompts for the WEP key.
    I enter the WEP pass code into the router setup and it generates the
    key. I want to be able to enter the pass-code instead.

    That's not the way your router works. The passphrase is only used to
    generate the key. You need to write down the key and enter that into your
    computer's wireless manager. If you want to be able to enter a passphrase,
    you need to replace your older router with one that can do more advanced
    encryption like WPA. The wireless adapter in your computer must support
    WPA, however. If it is old, it won't and you'll need to stick with WEP.
