Re: Does SSL "secure" WEP?

Hi there,

I am accessing Internet by using a WLAN-Router. The WLAN is secured
using WEP-encryption. I know it isn't secure but my Router doesn't
support WPA. My question is:
If I access a SSL-encrypted website through my WEP-secured WLAN, is
anybody who hacks my WEP-Key able to see what I typed(viewed) into the
SSL-Website?


You would be protected provided they don't Man in the middle your SSL
session (which is easier than anyone wants to believe).

Some things to know though:
WEP can be cracked in minutes.
New access points are cheap.
