I've tried every Open or Shared Wep 128 bit option in my linux gui on my new dell inspiron mini..(just got it yesterday.. really responds well as far as the default desktop applications so far!). Laptop attempts to connect but comes back and asks for key again displaying passphrase which has already failed. I believe in about or help menus - Gnome is mentioned that is probably my version of desktop.
do I need to convert my home or work wep keys to hex as that and passphrase options are the only ones that will take 26 character? tried that with a conversion tool but failed %XX%xx, etc..
I should be able to do this via the wireless option by default I would assume. It sees wireless networks no problem multiple at work and home.
Any help would be appreciated as I'm desktop support for Microsoft environment and have limited linux experience.
