Not really sure how to ask this but here goes.
I have a bt router as my main router in my house which I want to continue using. It is WPA protected and I want to keep it that way. However I have some devices that will only connect with WEP. So I was wondering if there is a way to setup my airport extreme to be a WEP protected network so I can use this only for the WEP devices and use my other router for my other devices and connections as it is more secure.
If this is possible, could you please explain to me the setup for the airport extreme as I don't know if it needs setting up as a seperate network or in bridge mode? I don't really understand the setup options on the airport and what is needed to do what.
I hope I've explained this clear enough but if not feel free to ask me for more details.
Thanks for any help in advance.
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.
