I have a Draytek 2600g wireless router as seen here:\n[URL]http://www.draytek.co.uk/products/vigor2600g.html[/URL]\n\nA desktop machine is connected via network cable with all\nsettings in TCP/IP, DNS etc., set to obtain automatically. This\nsystem is running XP Pro SP2 and connects to the net via the\nrouter. The gateway is set to 192.168.1.1 (default).\n\nThe system has a unique name for this machine and the group\nsetting is the default "WORKGROUP". However, the system will not\nidentify itself on the network in "My Network Places" despite the\n'network' connection being live and working.\n\nThe other machine is a laptop with a Belkin 802.11g wireless\nnetwork card installed. TCP/IP settings are set to automatic as\nabove and the system connects to the router and to the internet\nvia the router's gateway when all security settings are left\n"open". However this system also does not find itself in "My\nNetwork Places".\n\nAlso, it will not connect to the router when using added security\nwith the WPA-PSK option. I have set both the router and the\nlaptop to use WPA-PSK/TKIP and tried using both hex and ascii\npassphrases. To give examples:\n\nASCII: abcdef123\nHEX:\n0xabcdef1234abcdef1234abcdef1234abcdef1234abcdef1234abcdef1234abcd\n\nI have input both and niether will work. The router says the\nabove hex phrase is too long, and will only accept a 62 character\nstring without the "0x" prefix. Windows network setup will not\naccept anything resembling a hex phrase. Both systems will accept\nthe ASCII phrase, but then the laptop and router will not talk to\neach other. Clearing everything back to "open" establishes the\nconnection once more.\n\nCan anyone please assist?\n\nThanks.
