Newbie Q re WiFi Builder

Should the text entered into the SSID and PSK fields be enclosed in quotation marks? Thanks.

The WiFi Builder tool has no problem handling blank spaces. I just ran a quick test and see that it inserts its own quotation marks when it comments the plain text versions. Also, it interprets quotation marks as " before converting to HEX, and decodes the HEX to plain text with the original quotation marks in place, so my guess is that you shouldn't use quotation marks unless they are a part of your actual SSID or PSK

Thank you for your reply. By experiment today I too determined that the SSID and PSK text should be entered without quotation marks. Thanks again. 73 AC8SW
