Ok, so my mother was given an old lappy and I agreed to set it up for her. It’s old but used rarely. It’s Dell Insperon 1300.
I’ve been trying to set up her wifi but have come across an issue thats new to me.
Her existing network key/password is 8 characters long. When I type this in it tells me If you select WEP, the network key must be 5 ASCII or 10 hexadecimal characters for 64-bit encryption and 13 ASCII or 26 hexadecimal characters for 128-bit encryption.
It can’t put in a 5 or 10 character password as hers is 8. Never had this before and her PC accepts the password. Any ideas, is it the age of the lappy
