Configuring WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK Wireless Security

Note: Not all wireless adapters support WPA. Furthermore, client software is also required. Windows XP with Service Pack 2 does include WPA support. Nevertheless, the wireless adapter hardware and driver must also support WPA. For instructions on configuring wireless computers or PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) for WPA-PSK security, consult the documentation for the product you are using.

To configure WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK, follow these steps:

  1. In the Setup section of the main menu, click Wireless Settings
  2. Select one of the WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK options for the Security Type. The third option (WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WP2-PSK [AES]) is the most flexible, since it allows clients using either WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK.

  3. In the Passphrase box, enter a word or group of 8-63 printable characters. The passphrase is case sensitive.
  4. Click Apply to save your settings.
