Hi to all!

Can i use any ascii key as wpa2-psk?

When i try to use some ascii keys the linksys bridge does not authenticate with the Ap. Reading the Ap log it says "authentication failed".

What could it be the problem? (they both have the same PSK (ascii)).

Why's that?

Is there any incompatibility with some ascii characters between this two devices?

e.g. 190oWh@.78#793mFj#,[email protected]

Thanks in advance

AP allows only association of Workgroup Bridges as their client not the bridge itself. Check if you ahve configured the bridge in Workgroup bridge mode.

I think that is not a configuration problem. Without any security policy (wep, wpa) i can connect to the Ap.

Anyway, if i put a simple key (for example: 12345678) i can connecto to the ap. The problem is when i configure the psk with some ascii characters (for example: @#).

thanks for your help.
