Re: WICD: determining security type WEP -Hex or Passcode.
Depends, if your password is a string of hex numbers, like:
Then pick "hex". If it's the word used to generate the hex string (a normal word or string you input in your router), then use that word and "passcode".
Please have in mind, though, that WEP is deprecated and very insecure. If it's possible I'd recommend switching to WPA-PSK at least.
If for some reason you can't use WPA-PSK, I'd be good to change your WEP passcode regularly.
Wish I could prove I love you, but does that mean I have to walk on water?
When we are older you'll understand it's enough when I say so, and maybe some things are that simple.
