  1. Click Wireless Settings in the Setup section of the main menu.

    Figure 2-5

  2. Select the security option that you want to use:
    • WPA-PSK [TKIP]. Only computers or devices that use WPA-PSK [TKIP] will be able to connect to the router. WPA2-PSK [AES] devices cannot connect.
    • WPA2-PSK [AES]. Only computers or devices that use WPA2-PSK [AES] will be able to connect to the router.WPA-PSK [TKIP] devices cannot connect.
    • WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. This option is recommended, since it is compatible with a greater number of computers and devices.
  3. Enter a word or group of 8-63 printable characters in the Passphrase box.
  4. Click Apply to save your settings.

    Tip: If you were connected wirelessly to the router, you lost the wireless connection when you clicked Apply. Now you must change the wireless security settings for your computer to match the router settings. Then you will be able to connect to the router.
