I'm new to setting up wireless networks. I just brought a DLINK G604T and want to set up a wireless network with WPA2 encryption. Now i have set everything up so the wired connection works (so the ISP details are all correct). I have been trying to connect to this wireless network, but I can't seem to enter a "correct" network key (or WPA2 key?).
I get a message:
The network password needs to be 40 bits or 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.
Is the network key the same as the WPA2 PSK that I entered in the router settings? I have changed the default SSID and I am running Windows XP SP2.

If it is asking for 5 or 13 characters it is still set up for using WEP. I would check the settings in router, if these are correct then check that you have the up to date drivers for your wireless card and the wpa2 client update for XP SP2 installed.
If you are running SP2, try configuring it manually by going to the wireless network property sheet and manually add SSID and select WPA2. If you see WPA2, then you need to update windows for WPA2 patch. Also check whether router supports WPA2 and its configured to use.
