Hi. New user trying to setup the wifi dongle and I'm running into a security issue. It won't let me use any security (WPA2, WPA) but works fine with no security. Anyone else run into this? Everything else works fine.
Setup is:
Linksys E3000 router with Tomato V1.28

I use WPA TKIP and AFS in a Cradlepoint MBR1200 Router, and it works fine.

WPA2 AES security is more secure and and the preferred wifi security. That is why I'm asking. I've tried on two different routers and no luck.

Figured it out. Normally you can have special characters in your SSID. I had an apostrophe in my SSID. The weird thing is it didn't mind the name as long as security was off.

This problem was supposed to be fixed a long time ago, but I guess it hasn't been. If you could find time, send Ooma Customer support with the problem that you had and how you resolved it.

I just talked to them to close out my case. Just as a side note I thought the previous problem was with special characters in the password not the SSID.

I looked it up and in the beginning the problem was with Spaces and Special Characters in the SSID. That problem was to be corrected early on.
