    Default WEP web encryption

    Hi guys,

    In windows 8, I am trying to connect to a WEP network and even with the correct shared key it doesnt work. It had took me 30 mins to find a way to edit connection settings, and then it didnt even work.

    whats the solution for not being the administrator of the network? I heard that you windows 8 forums can solve any computer-related problem, so i come here for help.

    thank you for your time and i am waiting here for your help.

    Hello! Unfortunately WEP Shared-key is not safe and is deprecated, and Microsoft removed it from Windows 8 Consumer Preview and greater. There is no way to use a shared-key in Windows 8, but you can try to use an open-key (No authentication), but you have to change your router settings. It's the only way to get Internet to work in Windows 8, sorry. :/
