Re: Loggin into a WEP enable home network

If you are using a wireless card (I think WEP keys only apply to wireless devics, right?), and you are using Fedora Core 2, you can also click Applications --> System Tools --> Network, enter the root password, and then highlight the active device.

Click Edit.

Click the "Wireless Settings" tab.

You can enter the WEP key in the box provided for that. Then save it and re-activate the wireless device.

set the wep key by doing something like:

iwconfig ethX key s:ascii_key


iwconfig ethX key key-in-hex

take a look at the iwconfig manpage for more detail...
