Hi there. First post on here and looking for some assistance regarding WI-FI. I've searched on here and discovered that many people are having niggling issues but I can't find anyone having the same issue as me so I'll try a new thread.
I have a Netgear router with the wireless password in the WPA-PSK format. I've never had any issues with other items connecting and it should be pointed out that I have a Pre 2 that connects and works perfectly.
Now this is the issue. I tell the touchpad to connect to the router, it asks me for my 8 digit password, it accepts it and logs me on fine and I can connect to the internet with no issues. I come to the touchpad the next day and it wont connect. I ask it to connect to my network and it asks me to re-enter my password. This time the touchpad will ONLY accept 6 characters of my password. Obviously my router sees an incorrect password and wont allow the device access. I reboot my router, not the touchpad, and now the touchpad will allow me to enter all 8 characters and will connect again. Until the next day when the cycle starts again.
Now this is the important bit, I have TWO firesale touchpads that are doing the EXACT same thing! If the router was faulty or settings were incorrect I'd expect to see issues with other devices but as I say, I don't, the pre works fine. I'm confused, is this a webOS3 issue? A bug in the OS?
I hope I've worded this clearly enough to understand and any help or advice would be appreciated.
