    No, the password is saved on the host device, not the adapter.

    I know this a very old thread but I was wondering if anyone found out the truth of this. The help screen indeed states upto 64 characters but one can only enter 26. Has Dish released a new wireless adapter that DOES allow for 63/64H keys?

    It would be extremely lame for Dish to say I need to lower my security because they don't understand how easy it is to BRUTE FORCE now days.. a 2 or 3 machine PS3 cluster and viola :smoking: !

    (They used a PS3 super cluster to break open SSL certificates)

    BTW... unless you don't care for your identity !rolling , these days to use anything less than the longest, random key is asking to spend the next five or ten years just trying to prove you are you :eek2: . If you don't understand that some areas of this country are 'trolled' for wireless signals (even non-broadcast SSID's) more than yours, it doesn't mean my key is overkill just that yours is much easier to break and run with your identity.

    Personally, if DishNetwork doesn't understand this either would not be a surprise :bang ... no 3D, multiple issues with 1080p on the 722, etc.

    Will DishNetwork ever step at least into yesterday :blackeye: so we can start using our products to their FULLEST potential!!!

    Has anyone tried entering more characters? It might be a display bug rather than a data entry bug. Maybe. I have another wi-fi device that doesn't appear to allow more than 32 characters but it really does - just doesn't display them.

    I cant enter more than 26 characters. It stops adding any characters... they are not hidden so you can tell whats being taken.

    Also, my network is WPA2 but I hide my SSID. The adapter, by default, sets my network type to WPA (not WPA2) after I type in my SSID. I will call Dish tomorrow but thought Id try with some people with actual training on this before some basic CSR... good as Dish's CSR's may be.

    It really seems like no one in the Dish Executive branches are paying ANY attention.

    Then why use wireless at all? Why use WPA2? Why not use WPA2 Enterprise with RADIUS if you're that concerned about data safety?

    Does the 722 support WPA2 Enterprise with RADIUS?

    I don't get why people buy individual WiFi adapter for their VIP DVR, AV receiver or other equipment. I would just get a WiFi bridge with built-in 4 port switch like Dlink's DAP-1522 to connect my VIP DVR, AV receiver, Xbox and so on.
