Pix/Aironet/Vista compatability

Unanswered Question
Mar 3rd, 2008

Our small clinic uses a Windows NT server, connecting 2 portables using an 1121G Wireless router through a PIX 501 firewall (we also have two fixed LAN units) . Just got an HP m8357c with Vista installed, tried to use the wireless but having problems with connecting. After applying the WEP key, it tries to connect, shows "aquiring an IP address", indicates "connected with limited access" then drops off and starts the cycle again.

When I check the wireless connection, the WEP key is reduced from 26 characters to 8. IS this a Vista issue? Or is there a problem with the router? They have worked fine for 3 years for the NT server and XP workstations, both LAN and wireless.

I have this problem too.

Don't be concerned about the length of the WEP . Sometimes this seems to reduced. Make sure the key is right. This could be an issue with Vista.
