Hi,
Does Gnome Network Manager only support WEP 40/128-bit key and WEP 128-bit passphrase, but not WEP 64-bit?
Is there any way to make Gnome Network Manager support WEP 64-bit?
Thanks and regards!

They are the same.
Standard 64-bit WEP uses a 40 bit key (also known as WEP-40), which is concatenated with a 24-bit initialization vector (IV) to form the RC4 traffic key.From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wired_Equivalent_Privacy

Thank you!

If a wireless network is connected with the type "WEP (Hex [0-9/A-F])" specified in WICD, what type would I choose for the same wireless network in Gnome Network Manager? Gnome Network Manager and WICD seem to have different types of WEP at least by looking at their names.

Thanks!

what type would I choose for the same wireless network in Gnome Network Manager?Exactly what you inquired about above: 40/128-bit Hex. Be sure to try any letters both upper and lower case:
