Wep key doesnt enter correctly Tags: Configuration WEP Wireless Printer Wireless Networking Last response: July 3, 2010 6:53 AM in Wireless Networking Share Anonymous July 2, 2010 3:24:57 AM Hello, when i put my wep key in so that I may use my wireless printer, it tells me that the number isn't correct-it will show the wep key I typed in but it will also show 2 extra characters-and I didn't type those in. HELP!! More about : wep key doesnt enter correctly Anonymous July 2, 2010 7:16:53 AM Why are you using WEP -- if you have the choice go with WPA PSK TKIP which is simpler, safer. Maybe the issue you are having means you have an older version of XP -- install service pack 2 ? m 0 l Xstang July 3, 2010 6:14:36 AM Quote:Why are you using WEP -- if you have the choice go with WPA PSK TKIP which is simpler, safer. Maybe the issue you are having means you have an older version of XP -- install service pack 2 ? ...you've got it the wrong way around. and older, pre service pack 2 build of WinXP should work fine with WEP- its wpa that old versions of windows have problems with. That being said, yeah, you should just set your router as WPA-PSK if you can. A lot of newer devices-such as the iPad- do not work with wep, period. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Because the computer in question was too slow to work properly with later Service Packs installed, the solution was to use a Netgear wireless adapter with its own utilities. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
