WPA is a more powerful security technology for Wi-Fi networks than WEP. It provides strong data protection by using encryption as well as strong access controls and user authentication. WPA utilizes 128-bit encryption keys and dynamic session keys to ensure your wireless network’s privacy and enterprise security.Read More about WPA-PSK.

Step 1: Log into the web-based configuration by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the D-Link DWL-2100AP access point (

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK.

Step 3: Click on the Advanced tab and then click Encryption on the left hand side.

Step 4: Click on the WPA radio button and then click Apply.


Step 5: Select PSK and then enter a key (passphrase). The key is an alpha-numeric password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. Make sure you enter this key exactly the same on all other wireless clients. Keep the Group Key Update Interval set to 1800.


Step 6: Click on the Apply button to save your settings.

Note: If you are configuring your access point from a wireless adapter, you will lose connectivity as soon as you click Apply. You must enable WPA-PSK on your adapter and enter the same exact key as you entered on your access point.
