I have to connect my raspberry pi3+ to an WEP "secured" WiFi. I searched the netplan.io website but couldn't find an configuration example fitting my use case. Is netplan even supporting WEP configurations? Thanks!


The syntax is the same as for connecting to a WPA personal network: https://netplan.io/examples#connecting-to-a-wpa-personal-wireless-network

This isn't documented separately because WEP itself is deprecated and insecure.

  • First thank you for the reply! I am aware that WEP is insecure, but in this special scenario it is given like that. Are you sure it is possible to configure the connection like that? Because I now have a working configuration that looks like this in wpa_supplicant: network={ ssid="SSID_OF_ROUTER" key_mgmt=NONE wep_key0="******" wep_tx_keyidx=0 } And a config generated like you suggest looks like this: ctrl_interface=/run/wpa_supplicant network={ ssid="SSID_OF_ROUTER" key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk="******" } – Jan Erichsen Sep 16 at 4:19
  • can you try with auth: key-management: none as part of the ssid config? – slangasek Sep 17 at 5:36
  • Unfortunately setting auth: key-management: none doesn't work – Jan Erichsen Sep 20 at 6:31
