      Sky router accepts ASC11 passwords-laptop will not?

      Win xp on upstairs pc, win7 on laptop downstairs.

      Using wpa-psk on DG934 it will only accept ASC11 characters and my laptop built in adapter will only allow case sensative numbers & letters,so its a mismatch at present,no connection until i can get round this.

      Any help please.

      The original Sky WiFi password is made up from capital letters only. Please check that this is not the cause of your problems.

      Also ASCII has two 'I's and no numbers (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).
