I can not get passed the part where you are to submit the 64bit WEP key. My WEP Key is a 10 digit number. Is it ASCII and needs to be converted to HEX? If so the conversion is larger than 64 but has less characters than 128.

Or do I need software to access the 2WIRE to change channels or...?

It's called WEP64, but the key is 10 hex digits.

If I recall, the 2wire 1701HG has the default WEP64 key printed on the bottomof the unit, under the serial number. On mine it's all numeric.

Just enter these digits in as the WEP64 key, and you should be able to connect.

Let us know how it goes.

I tried that all weekend, it doesn't work.
I almost have it memorized I did it so often.
