    After autoloaded the 10.2.0.1047, i even couldnt finish setup the phone. It asked me data plan (mine just expired) or wifi. And the problem here...

    WIFI password for WEP is restricted to 10 chars length????? My company/home passwords longer! How? If i manage to change my home password to 10 chars length, ok, then what about other network? can connect at home only!?!?

    Please!! What a stupid issue!

    I had the same problem. For some reason 10.2 can't connect through wifi with an wep security. I changed my security from wep to wpa/wpa2 and volla, I'm connected.

    not good....the phone OS must support any type of connection. Why i need to change my system setting just because this BB10 os? while other phones/OS work well.
    Will fall back to previous version and wait for this stupid stuff fixed in formal release....Very very disappointed about BB 10 OS

    That's right. It must support any type of security. But it don't! 10.2 isn't official remember

    I know for sure that they will fix this.
    I had no issues on 10.1 with wep.
    So if you want to connect with wifi, change the security to wpa/wpa2 or roll back to 10.1.

    Byee

    For WEP, the KEY may be derived from a PASSPHRASE (password), but it's not the same. It's a string of hexadecimal digits. The length of the key is related to the number of bits. Normally your access point or router will have a configuration page that shows the key. It may be 10, 26 or 58 hex characters for 64, 128 and 256-bit encryption respectively.

    In any case, you should not ever be using WEP. It was retired 10 years ago because it was insecure and - obviously - not user-friendly. Configure your access point and wifi devices to use WPA2 instead.

    You've got much bigger problems if you're using WEP for wireless security in the 21st century...
