    Why can't you change your encryption to "wep"? Why do you want to do that?

    What are the choices for Encryption (or Security) mode?

    "tkip" and "aes" (which are usually designated TKIP and AES) are sub-choices for WPA2-PSK.

    If your issue is that WPA2 is not working for one or more of your devices my suggestion is to try w/o encryption and then try WPA-PSK.

    Few people still have such old devices that WEP is the only encryption that they support. As I asked in my previous post--why do you want to use WEP?
