First of all, go to the wireless subforum and read the stickies there. From
those, you will be able to diagnose the problem, and/or provide the information
that we need to help you.
One thing to note. There are several ways to convert a WEP passphrase to WEP key
and they are incompatible. The only safe way is input the hexadecimal key.
