if your some noob who just searches for wireless networks from your home because you do not have one then if you dont have a key then they can just connect easily. a noob wont try to crack a password as they wouldnt know how. what im trying to say is that a wep or wpa password is noob proof and around here most people are like that (no offence to them)

Hahaha. It amuses me to think people still consider themselves secure with WEP's. Whatever it is, I guarantee I can crack it in under 10 minutes.

the only reason people used them is so your average next door neibour can't steal your wi-fi so unless rakedog is your neibour you are ok

schultzy92, based on how you type and write, I honestly wouldn't expect you to memorize a 40-character key, much less change it every week.

Not that it would matter, as it doesn't make a slight bit of difference how long your WEP is. The algorithm is structured in such a way that a 5 character key will take just as long to crack with IV collisions as a 50 character key. Sorry bud.
