Generates WEP key for Airport networks.

Overview

WEP Key Maker generates a hexadecimal WEP key from a pass phrase. IEEE 802.11b (aka Airport, Wi-Fi) uses a 104- or 40-bit (aka 128- and 64-bit) key to encode packets with WEP encryption. Third party devices typically use a hexadecimal key, which WEP Key Maker helps create. Generating such a key from a pass phrase makes it easy to create and reproduce a key without writing it down. The key can be copied from WEP Key Maker's dialog and pasted directly into Airport dialogs and third-party software. WEP Key Maker also creates keys of other lengths.

This seems to be some old algorithm to convert from ASCII to HEX. The HEX created from this utility is not equivalent to that created by the SMC barricade base station - even though both are 128 bit. Also in OS X 10.2.8 I cannot cut and paste from the utility to the airport dialog. Needs to be updated.

Maybe you're right... i can't connect a WinXP laptop to my AirPort network (hosted by a G4).... maybe these hex values aren't right. Or mybe the hex algoritim is different for different hardware. These values are different form the one given by my neighbour Appel Base Station.... Bah....

Read the manual (as I did before using). It says that different companies can use different algorithms. Apple's is proprietary. The resulting key should work.
