My airport utility is version 5.6.1
So if I set it up in bridge mode I can set it up with WEP. Will it have the same SSID as my other router or will it be different?
Hiding my SSID makes sense to help my network be more secure.
Thank you so much.
If you have time to write me a sort of step by step guide that would be absolutely amazing, so I can make sure I do it right. As otherwise I will probably make a big mess of it.
Whatever you choose for the WiFi network name.
Step by step as you requested:
- Open up AirPort Utility.
- Go to the AirPort tab and select Wireless:
Under Wireless Security select WEP. Click Wireless Network Options and tick "Create a closed network". Also, you could turn down the transmit rate if you want.
These settings should work fine. Then, everything should be good to go.
Hey I am trying to also get on wep, because i have a game that doesnt connect to wpa, i am going to have to kinda secretly do this lol so do you know if it will mess up the current signal my router is emmitting? could i make it emit this one and the original one? That way i dont have to change the current settings? thanks
