    I have heard a lot of people saying wep is not a safe option for securing your wireless networking and wpa is the way to go, is wep really that unsecure?
    I use a pocket pc on my network which does not support wpa so at present i am using wep with a 10 character passcode.
    I also have a 500gb nas on this network is it vunerable to hacking?

    Thanks for any help

    These days you can download programs that crack WEP encryption with the click of a button. WPA has been cracked but it is a long and hard process.
