      Fibre connection live today - WPA passphrase oddity on SR101?

      Got upgraded from Sky Unlimited to fibre today, went very smoothly. Getting 40Mbs down/10Mbs up.

      One strange thing I've noticed with the new SR101 hub, it won't allow a space in the WPA passphrase, all other routers I've used had no such restriction. A bug?

      There are a few character restrictions present which you will not find on some other routers. This is a deliberate issue and not something which will be changed.

      I had to change a few things when I first set up the router. For example I may have previously used 'Scubbie Mobile' and would have to use 'Scubbie_Mobile' or 'Scubbie-Mobile' when giving a device name. I can't recall the entire list of characters off hand, but there is a prompt to advise you should you use one that isn't acceptable.
