I am having troubles connecting my windows mobile 5 device to my wireless network. The AP I am using is a Cisco Aironet 1120. Below is the config for my ap.

dot11 ssid wlan
   authentication open
   authentication key-management wpa
   wpa-psk ascii 7 password

It seems no matter how many times I try to connect to the AP, the authentication from the WM5 device fails. I have tried entering in the HEX equivalent into the WM5 device but that doesn't work either. On my device I tell it that the Authentication is WPA-PSK and Data encryption is TKIP (TKIP is the only option).

Any ideas?
