I am a novice to Cisco.  I am trying to set up an Aironet 1140 series access point.  It works fine if I do not put any security on it.  I am trying to put WEP on it.  No matter which encryption I put on (40 or 126 bit) none of the laptops or RF guns can associate with it.  I know it is asking for HEX and the laptops and RF guns are asking for ascii characters.  Is there something I can do?  I need some security on this.
