View Full Version : WEP Encryption

2005-10-27, 23:29
Hi all,

I'm using ZyAIR B-2000 v.2 router and I'm unable to connect. That is I can see the network and the SB2 even finds the SlimServer (v6.2) but that where it ends. the SB2 keeps writing "Connectin to server..." and the SlimServer writes "Your player was not found."
Going threw my router configuration settings I noticed that I need to enter 4 keys to be used with the WEP 64 bit, while during the setup of the SB2 I'm only able to enter 1 key. Is that related in any way?

Ideas? Am I missing something altogther?

The router typically has spaces to add 4 WEP keys (certainly my Linksys does) but you only need to add one.

It's probably not the cause of your problem, but it might be worth removing 3 or them. To test your SB you could actually disable encrytion altogether for a few minutes just to see if that works.

Also, if your router has an option for "Open" or "Shared" mode, switch it to Shared. Open doesn't work with SB.

Are you using MAC filtering on your router? If so ensure that you add the new MAC address (printed on the bottom of the SB2 unit)

My router requires me to enter 4 keys. So I ended up entering the same key 4 times. And it works.
