Wireless networking and WEP

By jeremy ·
I have an HP Tablet that has built-in Intel Centrino wireless networking capabilities. It came with no software so I am using Windows to connect to a wireless network. However, it does not pick up my AP. I turned SSID broadcast on and it still can't even see it. I am using WEP 128-bit hex encryption. What settings could be holding me up? The AP is a D-Link DI-624. Let me know if you can think of anything to try.

When I click on the ? at the top right window of the properties window for the connection to the AP and then click the Network Authentication field, it says that in addition to typing the network key, you must also specify the key format and length. There is no place to specify the key format or lenghth.

The first thing I do is check to see if your Tablet has a switch or some type of command that you need to enter to enable the wireless adapter

Check the type of card you have b,g,a type and the type your router is. It might not be compatible. Router a type is compatible with all three types of cards. But the b router is not compatible with g,a card. Also you might wanna disable wep to see if you can connect to router without it temporarily. If you can connect then try 64 bit (10 characters letters A-F and numbers) if that works then attempt 128bit (20 characters letters A-F and numbers)
