Enter hex password in AirPort connection dialog
Authored by: mmnw on May 21, '08 05:25:51AM

There are some routers out there, mostly older ones, that do not allow to use a custom ASCII passphrase. Even worse, I once encountered one, that used a custom algorithm to calculate a HEX code from an ASCII string. So this is a valuable hint with older or weird wireless hardware.

This was not what I really meant. Of course, if you have no choice then you must use hex password as I did before the WPA and other sophisticated wireless security stuffs came out.

However, this hint is pervert, the author of this hint wants to use hex passward for WPA wireless as the following excerpt shows what he says:

"...selecting a secure wireless network (WPA only) ..."
