    Howdy, Im new to the forum and not at all sure where you folks would like a possible bug report in the latest update 4.5.596 placed here, so feel free to move it if needed.
    Issue: password length on wireless networks must be 8 characters or more before they will be accepted after the latest update.
    In a nutshell: using a DROIDX have been signing into a wireless network useing a 5 digit password for months. After a factory reset on the DROIDX the connect key would not be highlighted or available when I tried to sign in to the network.
    Trial and error showed me that the DROIDX now required a minimum of 8 characters for the password before the connect key highlighted and became available.
    So if you have a problem connecting to a wireless network with less then 8 characters in the password after reseting or updating a DROIDX then change your wireless network password to 8 characters or more.
    I notified Motorola but the guy there seemed to think it was impossible to have less then 8 character in a password . Lol
    So I doubt they will act to correct the bug any time soon.
    On the plus side... Verizon call center actually took interest in the issue.
    Hope the info helps someone.

    Welcome to AndroidForums :D This is probably not the worst thing to happen though. A 5 character password isn't as strong as an 8 character pw so maybe they're looking out for out best interests? Hopefully? lol
