just wondering whether anybody else has come across the same problem and might have found a solution. Hardware Belkin 54 g ADSL Model with Wireless - G Router (F5D7632-4) HP Laptop with Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN Software Microsoft VISTA Basic
I had to manually set up the wireless network. However, when it comes to security settings, I could chose WPA-PSK with TKIP, but when I entered the pass-phrase and clicked ok, and wanted to connect - no success. Upon inspecting the properties again, I found the pass-phrase had reversed to some 8 character string (mine is way longer). For some reason I can't get Vista to use my pass-phrase and so it won't connect.
I was advised to look for a firmware upgrade, but then found various messages on this forum not to touch the upgrades with stories of the terminal demise of other peoples routers?
Any advice much appreciated
P.s.: Just spotted that natskyr seems to have similar probs with slightly different hardware?
I can tell you that your PSK did not get reverted to an 8-character string; Windows operating systems have obfuscated all passwords from XP onwards. I didn't know that anyone was still getting caught out by that.
