Trouble with wireless security

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
For the summer i've been living at home and haven't needed to enable any security on my wireless so i figured why bother with friends coming over and using it and all. but now that i've moved into my apartment for school i've noticed people hopping on it and want to secure it. I'm using WPA2 and with the AES algorithm and when i enter my key to connect to my wireless i get this error:
The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.

Anyone know what is going on here? Do I have to limit my key to a 5 or 13 character password?

Your password cannot be right. the router wouldn't allow you to enter a password that not compliant with the chosen security. try changing the router password and retrying..

i know i entered the password right, copy and paste is my best friend.
I've been doing some tinkering and it works with WPA but not WPA2. Anyone know if the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200 BG doesn't support WPA2?

Side note, I have a WRT54gl running DD-WRT v23-sp2
