i bought lenovo idea pad y50 - 70 can't connect to wifi with wep security

i can connect to unsecured wifi,

i can also conn also connect to hotsopt from my phone (security wpa2 psk)

but i can't connec to wifi in my house(security wep).

 

i'm guessing it a problem with settings.

i tried dowloading the driver for the wireless net work, still not working

 

edit: just to be clear i can connect to my home wifi using my phone.

         but not with my laptop.

 

what can i do?

Hi,

 

One possibility:

 

Is it an n mode router?  WEP isn't supposed to be used in n mode, although some devices and routers will allow it.  If your router is running n mode it may be that your laptop is doing the "right" thing by not connecting.

 

What happens if you configure your router to use a different encryption mode?
