I'm having trouble figuring out what's going on with my networking. Here's the situation: I installed a new hard drive into my netbook and had to redownload the driver for the wlan. When I try to connect to my network it gives me the area to type in the password. I hit OK and it gives me an error message that says:
The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration.
This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.

What does this mean? My settings are set up as shared network authentication, wep data encription with key provided automatically box checked. The Enable IEEE 802.1x... under the Authentication tab is unchecked.

Any ideas?

Check the routers wireless configuration.
You may have to write down the encryption key and enter it manually at your netbook.

Any ideas on where I would find that? I tried looking and couldn't find it on there. I can log on to my router and view everything but can only see what looks like process codes and IP info. I'm running a Motorola SBG6580. What exactly do I need to do to make it so I can just type in my password and get online? I have my TiVo hooked up to it just using my regular password and it works fine.

Success!!! I was able to find it through my Wireless primary network option and had to change my network properties on my netbook to be a WPA-PSK data authentication and AES data encription. Now it works! Thanks for the help.
