    Anyone know about broadband lines?

    Well I know a bit but this has me confused.

    I had broadband turned on Tuesday and tried my old router, it synched(connected) but I couldnt browse internet, I had to wait until yesterday to get the router the isp sent.

    That worked but only on WPA mode(im talking about encryption) if I selected WEP or none it wouldnt let me browse internet.

    I tried old router and the same, only works with WPA selected, if I try WEP or none though it recognises line it wont let me use it.

    What can problem be as if its not the routers how can a line limit me to WPA?

    You've lost me already.....if YOU can't fix it i don't think anyone can!

    You connecting via Wireless? try different laptop/computer via using wireless
    looks like the problem is the computer/laptop does not support WEP

    the line cannot limit you.

    What routers are they and what ISP are you using.

    there is no way the ISP can limit you what wireless security u choose unless you use there own branded router

    problems with where your router placed or interfering with something

    It's the same with ethernet though so maybe its not a security thing, select anything but WPA and I lose total internet connection even through ethernet.

    Maybe the problem is in the way you are setting up the WEP on your PC?

    I doubt it as its the same for disabling encryption completly the pc connects but wont browse internet.
