Question about Microsoft Broadband Networking MN-500 Wireless Base Station (L21-00001) Router
Using service pack 3, my dad has sp 3 and same adaptor in another room and can connect but i can't i keep getting an error saying...
"the network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters."
can't figure this one out....
This means that you have to enter the network key into your computer in order to connect to the network,
If you enter the password as hexadecimal characters, you must type exactly 10 characters (5 bytes) for a 40-bit key (valid characters are 0-9 and a-f), or exactly 26 characters (13 bytes) for a 104-bit key.
If you typed any number of characters other than 10 or 26, or any character that is not a hexadecimal digit, this is interpreted as ascii string.
In this mode, each character is a byte by itself.
So, valid length of the string in this case is either 5 or 13 characters.
If this condition is not met, the string can't be accepted as a valid password.
Please check carefully what you type. (Letter O instead if zero, or small L instead of 1 etc.)
If you don't know the key, you have to connect to the router via a cable and copy the key from there - or ask your Dad to give you the information. He will have it, because he has a working connection.
If you have any more questions or this is not clear ot you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
