I was successful at switching it to use a password but I don't completely understand how I did it.
I see from reading online that there is a difference between authentication and encryption but on my wireless router settings where is only a place to set encryption type. I cannot find a separate setting for authentication. I set it to WEP and entered a five letter word. I was able to get the two laptops and the printer to work by entering the five letter word when prompted but did not completely understand what I was doing.
I thought WEP was encryption and it is labeled encryption in my router settings. Is is possible it is using the same word for authentication and encryption?
