    Hi my name is tim and i am new to this forum. I am having an issue with windows saving my wep key to somthing other than what i type in when i go to connect to my wireless network. My wep key is a 10 digit key that i cannot change. but wep i plug the key into windows, It automatically changes it to something only 8 digits long, and therfore the computer wont connect to my router. any idea why it wont save the key i type in to connect with? using windows xp home edition sevice pack 3. broadcom 803.11g network adaptor. strangley enough the wired conection does not see the cable being pluged in aswell. even though under network propertys, both the wireless, and wired adaptors say the are working properly. please help. thanks.
