Xerox WNA-100 wireless print server does not accept wireless settings

I am attempting to setup a Xerox WNA-100 wireless print server for a client and connect it to a Xerox Phaser 6180 MFP.  My wireless network uses WPA2-PSK with AES encryption.  When I enter the wireless network info into the print server it does not accept it and gives me the error in the screen shot:

"Configuration error:
WPA encryption not valid in Ad-Hoc mode

Please correct your data and try again."

I have made very sure I am choosing infrastructure mode, not ad-hoc, but I get the error regardless of the settings I use.  I have contacted Xerox support but their level 2 support had no idea what was wrong.  They are supposedly working on it and will get back to me.  Has anyone else seen this error before?

This is a software error from Xerox and they are the only ones that will be able to fix it and release a firmware upgrade. I am sorry.

Thanks for your input.
I've had the exact same problem. You can bypass this issue by firstly changing from ad-hoc to infrastructure mode and then saving these changes before editing encryption or changing any other settings. Once you have made this change you will be able to move on to configure the other setting without getting the "ad-hoc" error. Best of luck.
