Has anyone had any problems with an airport extreme and DirecTV wireless network adapter?  Multiple networks show up and it won't  except the security key.

Airport extreme, iOS 6.1

    DirecTV is very particular about connecting to a wireless network.


    Your chances for a connection improve greatly....but cannot be guaranteed......if you observe these guidelines:


    The name of your wireless network cannot contain any special characters like an apostrophe, asterisk, dollar sign, exclamation point, etc.


    Use only letters and numbers in the wireless network name


    Do not exceed a total of 12 characters in the name


    Do not enter any blank spaces in the name


    Use the same guidelines for your password
