I have a Windows XP connected wirelessly to my Verizon Router M1424WR, but I am unable to connect wirelessly on an Acer laptop using Vista. The Vista can only connect with Ethernet. It will not accept the WEP key.:smileymad:

#1 Check the level of WEP. Two examples: 64 Bit, 128 Bit.

#2 And check to be sure, if you use a WEP password of Hex or Ascii.

Don't know why but I reentered the key this morning, after rebooting the computer, and now it connects.:smileyhappy:
