Sorry for the Lazarus here, but I ran into this for the first time on a project that I'm working.
I was unable to get several of my test units connected via SortAP. Tried to solve it over the phone... no dice.
Eventually on-site I realized that their router was WEP-PSK... it took me some time to track down this thread.
I'm concerned about this affecting the scalability of our product since this issue was found in at least 4 (so far) of the 25 devices we sent out for test.
Has there been a firmware solution to this issue, or is there a workaround that I can use. So far prefixing the password with "0005" has solved a couple of cases (still working on this). I'm not sure this would work for broad distribution.
Any thoughts out there? I'd like to know if this will cause me big headaches later.
