I am wondering if the issues with the Sense’s password limits have been addressed in an update of the Sense’s firmware.
I am having problems applying a 63 ASCII character WiFi password to the Sense. After looking around on the Sense forums I found the post from a while back.
The Original Poster fixed their issue by removing a space character from his WiFi password, but in a follow-up post, BenAtSense reported that the Sense device has a character limit of 58. This does not follow the 802.11i specification, so I can only assume that it is a flaw.
According to the 802.11i specification:
A pass-phrase is a sequence of between 8 and 63 ASCII-encoded characters.
My Sense has been disconnected for quite some time due to this flaw. I would like to get it working again. I just want to know before I get started trying to get it functional again if this flaw has been addressed.
Furthermore, if there is a technical reason that Sense cannot use the 802.11i standard I would like to know what that technical reason is, and what the Sense’s actual character limit is, and which characters must not be used.
