[Troubles] Invalid WEP Key

I just upgraded my windstream modem to the Sagem Fast 1704. When trying to setup my xbox I keeping getting an "Invalid WEP key" response - even though I'm typing it exactly as it is listed on the modem/router. Any suggestions?

I strongly recommend switching the security of your wireless to WPA2, unless you have an older wireless device in your home which is not compatible with WPA2. WEP encryption is deemed as being no longer secure, and the keys are easily cracked. That is not the case with WPA2.

Try entering the WEP KEY all in capitol letters.

I tried all caps - didn't work. Any other suggestions?

My ps3, iphone, & ipad all worked just fine using my WEP Key. Xbox just keeps saying it's invalid.

You should try WPA2.

You'll need to log into your router and go to the wireless security settings. There will be a place there to change the security type.
