I’m not sure if there is another place for me to enter the password but I’m hoping there is a way around itI found it. Apparently your laptop is asking for a WPS pin, which is 8 digits.
Is there another place for you to enter a WEP pin on your laptop which would be 10 digits? What version of Windows is it running (xp, vista, win7)
Or can you go to your router and see if it still supports WPS and get that 8 digit pin?
I have tried this and it still isn’t working. It won’t accept a 10 character passwordThis web page shows you where to put in the WEP key on a Vista
I’m not sure how to disable the WPS. I have tried entering the pin as well as the password and it won’t accept either of themThe only thing I've ever done with WPS is to disable it on one of my routers. Can you disable it on the router (and on the adapter???)? Or enter the pin on the computer, since it seems to be asking for that?
I guess that you would find the pin either on a sticker on the router and/or in the router settings.
I've dropped my earlier inquiries because I think that lunarlander found the right path (WPS).
