The success rate in making wireless connections using LDSAccess in our stake building is dismal. I have tried to connect four notebook computers but have been successful only with one. The one that succeeded is a Windows Vista system. The other three are Windows XP Professional. One of the Windows XP notebooks is using third party wireless connection software instead of windows to configure the connection. In all cases just after entering in the password to connect the following message appears and the connection fails.
The network password needs to be 40 bits or 10 bits depending on your network configuration.
This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.
For those of you who are more knowledgeable about wireless networking I could use some help. I have entered the correct password. Is there something I am overlooking?
In all cases the notebook's wireless hardware is built into the motherboard. I did not check on chipset manufacturers or anything like that.
