XFi won’t allow apostrophe in WPA

XFi won’t allow apostrophe in WPA

The XFi app won’t allow the use of an apostrophe in the WPA key when it is indeed a valid character.

Also, even though I changed the WiFi SSID in my C-XB3’s GUI page 2 days ago (using an apostrophe in the WPA), the Xfi app is still showing my old SSID.

Re: XFi won’t allow apostrophe in WPA

Hi, Natenbeckie - Awesome SSID name Smiley Happy We have a known issue with adding an apostrophe to Device Names on iOS devices. It could cause issues for changing network passwords as well. I was able to duplicate it on my iPhone, got the same error message. However, when I tried an Android smartphone - no error message popped up. As soon as I get more information, I will let you know.
