Linksys WBP54G bridge WEP authentication and firmware


I'm working Linksys WBP54G bridges and am having problems in a couple areas. One is that when configuring WEP 128 for the bridge, the utility refuses to allow more than 16 characters being entered for the passphrase even though 128 bit WEP allows up to 26 characters. I'm trying to connect the bridge to an existing wireless network that uses 26 character passphrase. I know that WEP is outdated but reconfiguring the network is not an option unfortunately.

Is there a way to enter 26 characters or is there a update for the bridge setup utility?

This was already asked in an earlier thread, but I'll ask it too, the utility doesn't work in Vista or above, it only works for XP. Is there an update in the works?

Appreciate it,

Thank you
