My network uses a 128bit wep with the SSID on no broadcast. I can locate it when I add a new wep wep security network but it can't connet to it.
It see's it when I create it but once it tries to connect it fails and says it's ourt of range. Any idea how to get it working?
You might have to restart your router. I've had issues like that in the past with other devices (I use WPA2 on my wireless) and I've found that restarting the router fixes it 99% of the time. The other quick fix might be to turn the wireless off, then on then try connecting to your network.
I srebooted the router it still can't connet.
How about if you "unhide" the SSID? You could try it temporarily to see if that is the issue.
It does not help does android have an issue with 128bit wep encryption or something. My router broadcasts a network with 802.11 b , g , and n because I have devices in all 3 network protocols.
I've gone 'a-googling' and it does seem that some android devices do seem to have trouble with WEP. The solutions bandied are check for an IP conflict, and try using the WPS to connect to the router. Or putting a static IP address for your device. (http://www.thisandroidlife.com/2009/09/setting-static-ip-address-for-wi-fi/)
Maybe a TMobile forum rep will have something better for you.
Static connects it but it can't surf or get to the router homepage. I have 100 ip addresses open to use.
