Connecting to WiFi
I got my WAP this morning and set it up, including a long password - 16 characters.
My laptop could connect perfectly well, but not the Nexus. It showed the SSID but when I put in the password the wifi icon vanished and it said 'Out of Range' which I certainly am not - I'm sat right next to the WAP. I went through 'Forget' and re-entering the password several times to no avail.
I removed the security and can connect with no problem but obviously that's not a long-term solution.
Is there a limit on the length fo the password in Android? Or some other strange problem I'm not aware of, that isn't an issue for the PC?
I'm using the WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK security - at least the PC is/was.
