    I'd go for WEP, I use wep and it is only one key I need use, It works a peach for me and I have no problems whatsoever! If you want extreme proctection then use WPA personal which lets you have up to 4 passkeys
    Back with the mac!

    I tried to set up WEP (both 64 an 128 bit). When I restart my computer I get promted for a password and I enter the same number I entered the the WEP setup screen (copy and paste so there are no errors) but it won't connect. Any ideas?

    Nevermind, I fixed it... I needed to turn on WEP on my connection settings

    Since you seemed to have missed the sticky at the top of this forum, allow me to move this to the correct place.
