My WEP password is 16 characters, consisting of letters and numbers. However my laptop will only allow me to enter 8 numeric characters in the password field.
How can i enter the 16 characters needed to connect to my network?
The P.W. i'm referring to is the WEP ID # that the cable guy gave me when he installed my internet/wireless router. It's 4 sets of 4 alphanumeric characters. Each set is seperated by a dash.
It's also on a sticker on the side of my router.
I'm pretty sure i have the ID correct, it's just that my old Dell won't accept more than 8 characters in the P.W. field.
It's weird because when the guy first installed my wireless I was able to get the characters into the PW box buy copying and pasting from a text doc.
For some reason the computer lost the connection last night and now I can't get the PW back into it.
The PW works on my phone and my other laptop, so I do know it's correct.
It's driving me nuts!!
