Hello,
I have in use a Digiconnect Broadband Router type WIC328 with firmware V1.16
bought by Mycom. Till now I was not using encryption and the router was
working O.K. Now I want to use WEP encryption with a 26 character key. When
I logon to the router and go to menu Wiresless Security to set WEP on, then
I expect the posibility to set the encryption key but I don't get this
screen to set the key. New firmware for this router is not available.
Who can help me?
Thanks in advance. Jan

Problem is solved.

The reason was FireFox could not work with this router. IE V6 and V7 gives
no problem.
I did some investigations in both cases I took a a look to the html code,
there I saw in both cases two files named ´broadband router_files´ and
´broadband router.htm´. The contents of these files are not the same
between Firefox and IE. I don´t not why. I think you need a protocol
analyzer to see what is sent by Firefox and by IE. But any way it is working
now.

Thanks so far. Jan (the Netherlands)

same not able to configurate the router.
