While attempting to connect my Laptop to my wireless network (Bell Sympatico), I got the error message "The Network passowrd has to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 acsii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters". My network key is 26 characters, and the 2 other computers in my house connect the my wireless network using the same key. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Is there anyway I can change my passphrase back?

Are you sure that you have the correct encryption type selected. I'm assuming that you are using WEP?
