I have a Windows ME computer that is using the Lucent Orinoco USB Client Gold wireless adapter.
Client Part Number: 014948/A
Client Serial Number: 01UT30361290
The Client Manager is unable to connect to a new wireless network that uses a 128-bit WEP key. I am able to connect to a different network that uses a 64-bit key.
The problem seems to be when I edit the Configuration Profile, the Security is set to "Use Alphanumeric Characters" instead of "Use Hexadecimal". I can change this setting to "Use Hexadecimal" but when I look in the settings again, it has changed back to "Use Alphanumeric Characters". I don't know if this is a bug or what, but it just WON'T stay on "Hexadecimal", so I'm not sure what to do.
I have taken some screen shots so you can see what I mean. They are in my Picasa Web Album here:
I have attempted to uninstall the USB client, and reinstall it, including the drivers, the Client Manager. I downloaded a new ISO for the driver and client manager from the Proxim site. But, same thing.
There are a bunch of other computers, all running Windows XP, that connect to this network fine. And, as I mentioned earlier, the Windows ME client can connect to a network with a 64-bit WEP key.
