Wireless Problem

I got my iliad yesterday and I really love this device.
My problem is today I tried to connect my iliad to ids by
using wireless connection but the screen always showed
It unsuccessfully connected to my wireless router.

This is my router configuration

Linksys Wireless G router (wrt54gs)
using WEP key: 10 digit numbers
(I also disabled WEP but it didn't work)
DHCP: enable

Note I can connect to ids by using lan cable

My iliad has developer package with V2.11 software

I tried to search this forums and also irex forums but
didn't find the solution. I hope someone can help me
solve the problem..

thank you in advance

I've seen people talking about v2.11 needing your wireless router to broadcast the SID. See if you have that setup on the router.

Also, make sure you're not blocking by MAC address on the router. If you are, then the MAC address printed on the back label of the iLiad is NOT the one that you want to use. That's the MAC address for the wired interface. The wireless interface has a different MAC.

Thank you for your suggestion Shaggy


Finally I solved the problem by myself. After I downloaded nice app from k2r at this post:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?t=8802/#5

and read the log file. I came up with some idea and solved the problem

first the log file told me that the iLiad couldn't find the specified SSID
even I saw it from the connection wizard.

second My SSID was "B[e]Er" which contains some special characters.
After I analyzed this, I changed my SSID to "Beer" and tried to connect
again. It's work

conclusion: If you set your wireless router according to this list
Security :WEP 10 digits
DHCP: enable
don't forget to set your SSID to use only charracter a-z and maybe 0-9
(for number I didn't test)


thank you for looking

My WiFi network is using WPA security without broadcasting the SSID. My SSID is composed of letters and dollar signs. No problem so far in getting connected to iDS.

Cheers!!

No Christmas Joy - no wireless connection

I am having an awful time trying to get the wireless to work I am using a Dlink DIR-655. I have no issues with the Wired side of things

I've gone through the following:

1) Search and unable to find our network ever although it finds all the neighbours ()
2) manually configured a half dozen times to no avail
3) removed all encryption and manually created a profile - THIS WORKED
4) tried a WEP connection - no go
5) tried a WPA connection - no go
6) upgraded the firmware to 1.11 on my router
7) after 3-4 searches in a row the iLiad now auto-detects the network
8) still will not connect with any sort of encyption enabled.

These are the settings from the router:

SSID: AddingtonWireless
Security Mode: WPA Only - Personal
Cipher Type: TKIP
Pre-shared Key: xxxx

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

thx

jack

jaddington, I'm not sure about your problems.
From your info, you should be able to connect to ids.
what is the version of your iliad, someone said the older version than 2.11
can not use wpa.
and Did you use only hex digit for your security key?

Wireless Problem

It is brand new, v2.11. I am using a regular string for the key. I thought the Hex only was for WEP, not WPA. Allthought I will have to give that a try this evening.

thx

Unhappy update

I entered some info at irex support and they are asking for it to be returned for repairs. No try this, try that, just please send it back and pay for shipping :-(.

Oh well, guess it is going back since we used up the 7 day return policy while it was sitting under the tree.

That's really bad news.
I hope you can get your iLiad back soon

If it's a warranty repair I thought they would pay the shipping?

DIR 655

I had the same problem with my iLiad and DIR 655. To fix it I had to do two things:

Turn WISH off
This option is found on the Advanced Tab
Turn off WiFi Protected Setup
Again found under the Advanced Tab
I am now connected with WPA secutiry to my wireless network
