I'm trying to connect to a wpa wifi network which has a 64 hex character password but the password field in settings > wifi > (network) is only 63 characters long. I know that if I had an alphanumeric password 63 characters would be the limit so I guess it thinks I have one but i can't figure out how to tell it I have a 64 hex character password instead. Changing the password type is also not really an option.
