Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have an Acer laptop and can connect to any wireless connection if there is not a password on it. However, if I try to connect to a modum that is password enabled, it won't connect, even if I have the correct password. It says that the password has to be 5 or 13 characters long but the password on this particular wireless port is only 9 characters long. This is not the first time I have had this problem, I just thought that I had the wrong password on the previous ones. Now, after I played around with it and couldn't get it connected, if I boot my computer up in range of this modem, it doesn't even ask for a password, just tries to connect it and then comes up and says internet disconnected. Any ideas?
WEP is a standard encryption standard that has a 4 keys based on a passphrase. In addition to the correct name and the correct key, make sure youre picking the correct numerical key. (Example: Youre connecting to network MYHOME and the passphrase generated 4 keys and the router is using key number 3. You must use the third key.) Look up the settings on the router and retrieve the encryption key, and whether its the first, second, third, or fourth key. Youll need a computer thats directly connected to the router.
