[quote name='greenwaynegreen;51505]Just a short note for all those trying to use WEP with a password and are having problems - give up! WPA works fine with a password. WEP is a 5 year old standard that I am told can be cracked within 20 minutes using fairly standard cracking software. I have not found a way of getting my zt-180 to work with WEP. WPA with a password = no problems. I tried again with frimware 0827 and still no go on WEP with a password. I console myself with the fact that WPA is supposedly far superior. Ok Ok I know that I will get flamed on this and rightly deserved to be because I am sure there is a whole camp out there that likes WEP. If some one has WEP working with a password please let me know how' date=' what version of firmware and what version of motherboard please. I have tried a1b2c3d4e5 and A1B2C3D4E5 and the same variations with spaces ie a1 b2 - please note this is not my actual login although I did reset my router for a bit to this code to check to see if it works. I then tried WEP without any login on my router and it connected fine. I can login in with my wii and my mobile phone using this code under WEP with a password to my router with no problems. Best of luck Dtembe. Sounds like you have a dud resitive screen. Kind Regards Wayne[/QUOTE'] I long pressed my access point (wait till it turns white) after it scanned, and then told it what type of connection it was (automatic is the default), seemed to work after that (running 0827 ROM), but I didn't have this problem with previous ROMs, just the 0827. But you are right, WPA is better encryption, but I have no need or desire to upgrade my router right now.
