    I am running Tomato Ver 1.23 on a Linksys WRT54Gv4 that I was running sucessfully at my last apartment using the Wireless Internet Bridge feature and WPA Personal. I have now moved to another apartment and the wireless access is via WEP (please don't reply about how bad WEP is, I don't really have a choice here.) I have two laptops and a ruko radio connected with no problem, but the Tomato bridge wont work. I have reset the tomato router to defaults and set it up according to all the directions I could find without sucess.

    The only other difference is the the SSID has a space in it. I don't know if that would cause a problem or not, I don't have another router to test with. The access point that I am connecting to looks like a WRT300N.

    Has anyone exiperienced a problem with a space in the SSID or bridge mode and WEP? Thanks for any help.

    My bad. The WEP passphrase that I was given was actually the key. Once I got that fixed (though I did remove the space from the SSID) all was good.
