I just reinstalled XP on this laptop, installed all the drivers, and all the apps. My wireless network is a WEP 128-Bit data encryption, but when I pull up the config, there's only an option for WEP. There isn't an option for WEP 128 on any of the Network Authentication's four options (Open, Shared, WPA, or WPA-PSK).
On Open and Shared, there's 'Disabled' and 'WEP'. On WPA and WPA-PSK there's "WEP", "TKP", and 'AES"
When I tried to put in the network key, it took it and let me online, but it kicks me off every few minutes and I have to reconnect. It also reduced my key down to about eight or nine letters instead of the twenty or whatever letters and numbers it is.
How in the world do I get this stupid thing to stay connected?
What's a good Tech comm to post this to if no one on here can help me or to ask future questions at?
