If you were given a password that uses only the hexadecimal range of characters (which are: abcdef0123456789), put a dollar sign ($) before the password. These passwords are 10 characters long for 40-bit encrypted networks or 26 characters long for 128-bit encrypted networks. In a hexadecimal password, the dollar sign is called the Hex Escape. It notifies the software that the characters that follow it should be treated as a hexadecimal number. Other possible hex escapes are "0x" and "0X" (zero-x, and the "x" may be upper or lower case)."

i still can not get wireless on my mac - I can see my network, also does it matter if I am using
128 bit encrypt/ 26 hex and the default transmit key is number 2
I tried to use the dollar signs and ox and nothing, I have also went to the site and tried to read up on it and it gave me no help....I have tried all options that it is providing to me when I chose my network.
128/40 ASCII - did not do anything, since my password was not ascii
leap - no clue what this is

I have tried that....I have reset it several times, basic troubleshooting has been done but I cant seem to connect
this is what I have done:
used the $ 0x infront of the hex code
reset the router
change the transmit key to 1 from 2
re changed the transmit key to 2
copied the hex code to yahoo notepad, then directly connected via ethernet wire and then copy paste, no work and also with the $ and 0x
it is asking for a password...how can I manually enter the hex into the network connections like I did to my windows, and chose the transmit key

I figured it out!!! the first HEX needs to be used...not the second even tho I had it transmit the 2nd key...but now I cant get an IP at all....I am connected as per the network congif but I cant surf the internet or get an IP
I have restarted the router and then turned on the mac and still nothing....can it maybe because I am transmitting the 2nd key? cause if I use the 2nd hex for my mac it wont work or connect....only the first hex will, but I cant get online

One quick question, are you leaving it at Paraphrase when entering the code or did you click the clicker and change it to 128 Hex?
First is the Default.

Hope this maybe helps. If it's set wrong it will do exactly what yours is doing....Dennis
