Getting WEP on the Guest Network

Hi Guys,

I used recently purchased a WNDR4500 to replace a WNDR4000.

In the WNDR4000 you had the ability to set up a guest network with WEP.

The WNDR4500 doesn't seem to have this ability, or I'm just missing it.

Can you set up WEP in a guest network in the WNDR4500?

Select up to 54Mbps under mode and WEP should show up.

It is recommended that you refrain from using WEP as it is insecure and being phased out in the next year or two.

If you have any devices that cannot use WPA or WPA2 then check for any firmware and software updates.

for some old devices that only works on WEP then buy using guest network will at least protect from the main LAN.

WEP are available to use under B&G mode or 54Mbps settings.

I appreciate that some old devices will be limited to WEP but many will have various updates available on-line to allow them to support WPA and WPA2.

I found with the DGND3700 that in order to gain access to WEP that I would have to slow the router down to 54mbps on say the 2.4GHz channel. This would affect both the guest account/s and the main one. I will assume that this is the case with the WNDR4500.
