Hi all, I have problems trying to connect my  ATMEL USB FastVNET (505A)
Adapter to my Netgear MR814v2 Router. When I look at the devices monitor it
tells me that the SSID field is blank, authentication type is open and
encription is disabled yet when I used windows wirless network wizard I
specified the SSID, shared authenthication and manually entered  a  128 bit
WEP key.

I can not manually correct these entries as they are grayed out with the
message current settings are configured by windows.

So does anybody know how to get windows to change these settings or
(perfered) turn of the windows configuration so I can enter the values I want?
