I am sure I tried that. But I was always filling in a passphrase on
the "WEP 128-bit Passphrase", and this key (generated from the
passphrase on the router interface) on the "WEP 64/128-bit Hex".
What are you filling in in the Hex key field? An actual key you got
from a phrase when configuring the router, or your actual passphrase?
