Setup: WRT54G, WAP54G as repeater, 2 PCs, 1 Powerbook, 2 Palm Tungsten T|X, 2 TIVO boxes. The TiVOs don't support WPA unless I stick a WAP54G next to each one so I'm forced to use WEP. I've got the system working right now with WEP, I just don't like the password scheme. I used the WRT54G password generator to take my 13 character passphrase and turn it into as 128 bit hex code. Oddly, the TIVOs, the WAP54G, and the Palm device will accept my 13 character passphrase. The Powerbook and the WinXP machines require that I use the 128 bit hex codes. Is there a way to set up the WEP password on the WRT54G so that I can use an ASCII WEP password on the Powerbook and XP machines? Would an alternate key generator, like the one at this site (http://www.andrewscompanies.com/tools/wep.asp) work? I really don't want to have to type in a 26-character gibberish hex phrase to connect a new device. It's even worse on windows because you have to type it blind and you have to do it twice. Very annoying. Sticking the key on a USB stick is equally annoying.
