So for the past few years I've had problems with my Belkin wireless router. It has 128 bit WEP security enabled. When ever I tried to connect I would always get limited or no connectivity. After disabling all the security, it now works perfectly. Does anyone know what's going on?

If it doesn't work with the security on but does work when its off, there is something wrong with your security. Try changing to WPA or WPA2.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

As an option, U can also Try MAC filter, its more secure to work use.

Actually MAC filtering is no more secure then WEP, possibly less. MACs can be cloned and WEP has been broken for quit a long time.
