Ticket #1084 (closed bug: fixed)
Fonera 2.0N WPA Key Length/Content Limitations
|Reported by:||mpd@…||Owned by:|
Posted this to the forum a while ago, and just noticed I was told to put it up here (didn't even know this tracker existed...)
When setting up a Fonera 2.0N, I seem to be running into an artificial limitation:
I'm trying to set a 50-character WPA keyphrase with punctuation ("," and "."). The dashboard lets me do so, but then my devices (macbook pro and Nook 1st-ed) can't connect (either "connection timeout" or "invalid password"). If I remove the punctuation and cut the length down to 16 or fewer characters, it connects fine, so apparently there's a 16-char alphanumeric limit?
A WPA key should allow up to 63 ASCII characters! Is there some other way to set a proper keyphrase? 16 is ridiculously short, and limiting the character set is doubly insecure.
