How do I enable WEP encryption on my DIR‑845L router?

Step 1: Open your Internet browser and enter http://dlinkrouter, http://dlinkrouter.local, or http://192.168.0.1 into the address bar.

Step 2: The default username is Admin and the password should be left blank. Click Login.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings from the menu on the left-hand side. Then click Manual Wireless Connection Setup.

Step 4: Under the Wireless Security Mode section, select WEP from the Security Mode drop-down menu. In the section below, select the desired WEP Key Length, and the Authentica-tion type from the drop-down menus.

Enter the desired WEP Key in the field provided. For 64 bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into the WEP key box. For 128 bit keys you must enter 26 hex digits into the WEP key box. A hex digit is either a number from 0 to 9 or a letter from A to F.

You may also enter any text string into a WEP key box, in which case it will be converted into a hexadecimal key using the ASCII values of the characters. A maximum of 5 text characters can be entered for 64 bit keys, and a maximum of 13 characters for 128 bit keys.
