    Can only enter 12 keys for wireless?


    Just installed the dev on my laptop, went to connect wirelessly. I can see my router - but for the life of me I can't see how to enter my full 64 char key? It only lets me input 12 so I can't log on


    What obvious thing am I missing here?

    Try doing it manually through the Network and Sharing centre (if you haven't already).

    I've had problems with the Metro side-panel, specifically when setting up new network connections.

    That seemed to the trick. It took a few goes however

    At last it's working now. Thanks Alexis
