I Suck @ Teh IT Guy

man i suck. got a laptop for cheap (for dsmlink, but ill prolly give it to my sister if the gsx sells), and it has a wireless card (wireless G).

my router is set for WEP, 64bit (10 hex), however, when i enter the settings on the laptop side of things, it only brings me up two options, 40bit (10 digits) and 104 bits (26 digits). even if i put my router at 128 bit (26 hex) the keys do not work. Router is set to read mixed (Wireless G or B), i tried setting it on just G and that did not change a thing.

for ****s and giggles if i disable security my laptop connects instantly and has access to the net.

now i can press a button on my router (Linksys WRT45GS) which does something like "easy wireless" where it opens the network momentarily, in which the laptop recognizes it and gets access, but once the access mode shuts off, i lose connection.

my IT buddy has it configured so he can come over and his laptop connects instantly, but he has a internal wireless card (i doubt that changes much).

Re: I Suck @ Teh IT Guy

Do you mean WRT54GS?

If so why don't you set it up to be WAP-TKIP enabled?

its the model # of my Linksys router. just thought it might be important.

I tried WAP-TKIP but i couldnt figure out what needed to be done on the laptop end, as anytime you click settings and advanced, it just wants the WEP key stuff.

i have a chance to buy-back my Cobra. I either have to sell the GSX, put that money down on the GT's loan so i can sell the GT at around 9-10K range, and then buy the Cobra. Or i have to hope my Draftsman who wants 11.5K for both my GT/GSX (he needs a DD since he moved back to cali, and wants a car to make into a auto X car to race with our other drafting guy).

Re: I Suck @ Teh IT Guy

I didn't know if you meant WRT54GS or WRT45GS. I have the same router.

Perhaps n8r is right. The two are just not compatible :dunno:

Re: I Suck @ Teh IT Guy

Yup, it was the wireless card that came with it. i just got a 40$ linksys card (WPC54GS), put in the correct key and it connected with excellent signal. nice work to those who got the correct solution!
