    I have that same problem, its too short. when I chose other options, it says it's too long... You could chose between 64 or 128 bits in lenght, but mine was set in 64. Even when I'm in an area with unlocked networks, trying to get conneced is most of the time failure. I was sometimes connected to the internet, but I still don't have the browser.

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

My archos 605 gen 5 cannot connect to internect


Try:- Menu Settings Language and Region WiFi Region.....set to "EUROPE" Followed by: Menu WiFi Status WIFi ...important that pasword format corresponds to that of your WiFI system eg WEP or WPA. The type of format will dictate the length of code. Generally WPA can accept a longer code than WEP format although a short code can be used for either. If your Archos is set to WEP and your WiFi network set to WPA (or vice versa) the format conflict will not allow the correct password to recognised It should be possible to use the

My Archos 605 80gb cannot find my netgear wireless thingy!!!!


I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

Wireless connection


From the home screen, select the Wifi connection icon (middle icon on the right). It says 'scanning for networks'. It should then bring up any networks in range, including yours. Select yours and enter your WEP key or WPA key and click connect.
It should then connect.
Hope that helps.
