Just got my 9400 today and first job was to get it connected to the network.

Using my usual WEP setting i cannot get the 9400 to connect - will it not show c onnected until it finds an expander ? My RFX9600 is still in its box :) So far i've spent most of the evening messing with this rather than getting on w ith the important stuff... Thanks

In order for anyone to even think about assisting, please provide more informati on such as router type, your WEP settings, etc...

Well - i bought 2 x 9400's - one for office one for home. Office one connected f ine - 64bit WEP - 10 digit ASCII code (like DEAB123456), fixed IP, old netgear w ireless 'b' only AP. Home one still no joy - 128bit WEP - 13 digit ASCII (like this 01234567890DB) se em to have no choice but use Capital's - have put this in passkey and hex boxes, Draytek Vigor 2600G using B + G setting, tried fixed IP and DHCP. Currently hav e 2 x Viewsonic Smart Displays and 1 x Nokia N800 all sitting on the wireless ne twork no problem... Any suggestions appreciated - its distracting me from using it as a remote :) TIA

It's a little more trouble. one does not know for sure that t his is the issue. Dean www. And now its connected :) Hopefully everything else wireless will connect now. I have a new 9400 as of today... Which i did admittedly using their example.. Since most devices will not show the hex key. but more and more I'm simply using the full hex key.
