Networking QuickTips

Here's a couple of things to try when connecting to encrypted networks on the XO:

  • Be very specific about your encryption type, the XO's network autoconfiguration needs some work
  • On a WPA network ,if you have an key that looks like a password, select ascii for the key type. If it looks like a long random sequence, it is probably a hex key.
  • On a WPA network, I have had improved success by entering the full hex key, even if the key is normally a string (I will edit this post with a link to a converter , can't find it ATM)

"Select Ascii" how? Where? I don't have "selection" choices that I can see.
