My wireless lan security parameters are wrong need help.
I have a Acer laptop which was running Vista and able to connect to the internet wireless with no problems.
I cleared (reformatted) the computer and installed Puppy 431.
The computer works fine using an Ethernet connection but I am having a problem setting up a wireless connection to the internet.
I went to the router (192.168.1.1) and here how it is set up.
On the Wireless Settings/Wireless status screen:
SECURITY ENABLED YES
WEP 64 BIT 15F4B5648C
SSID BROADCAST ENABLED
MAC AUTHENTICATION DISABLED
On the Wireless Settings/Basic Security Screen:
WIRELESS MODE MIXED Accepts 802.11b and 802.11g Connections.
So far so good.
The puppy network wizard correctlyloated my wireles adapter
and Installed the driver. So far so good.
There are a few network parameters needed complete the network wizard and I need help with them.
Here's how I am set up right now.
Encryption = WPA2
Essid = same as above 12211
Mode Ad-hoc and restricted are both checked. Managed and open are not checked.
AP scan Broadcast SSID is checked, hidden and driver both not checked.
Shared key = same as above 15F4B5648C
When I save and use this profile I get a message saying puppy failed to make a WPA2 connection.
Can anyone suggest the correct parameters.
I have already confirmed that the shared key is correct by using it on a Windows XP wireless computer.
