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:
RADIO ENABLED
SSID 12211
SECURITY ENABLED YES
WEP 64 BIT 15F4B5648C
SSID BROADCAST ENABLED
MAC AUTHENTICATION DISABLED

On the Wireless Settings/Basic Security Screen:
WIRELESS ON
SSID 12211
CHANNEL 11
WEP ON
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.

Your router set 64-bit WEP, you say your wireless card is set to use WPA2. That's the first problem.
