Creating a wireless network with a Verizon 9100EM router in Windows XP
Select WPA in the Stations Security Type field.
Confirm that Pre-Shared Key is selected in the Authentication Method field. [Show Me]
Select the format for entering your WPA encryption key. You can enter your WPA encryption key in ASCII (combination of numbers and letters) or hex (combination of numbers 0 - 9 and letters A - F) format. [Show Me]
Note: You may want to use the ASCII format because you can choose a phrase that's easier to remember. For example, you could enter "EnjoySummerBe4Its2L8" as your encryption key if you're using the ASCII format.
Enter your WPA encryption key in the Pre-Shared Key field.
If you use the hex format, your encryption key must be 64 characters long.
If you use ASCII format, your encryption key must be between 8 and 63 characters long.
