What's a valid WEP key format? (1/13)

Last Updated: May 23, 2014 05:57AM UTC
WEP can be configured to either use 40 or 104 bit keys. Use the 104 bit keys for increased security (or even better: switch to WPA2 for real security). The valid formats are as follows:
  • For 104 bit WEP: 13 printable ASCII characters or 26 hexadecimal digits
  • For 40 bit WEP: 5 printable ASCII characters or 10 hexadecimal digits
Many Wi-Fi access points allow to enter a passphrase which is used to generated (sometimes multiple) WEP keys. You normally have to use the WEP key, the passphrase usually does not work.

‚ÄčNote: hexadecimal digits are 0 to 9 and A to F
