Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the access point (192.168.0.50).

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.

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 (192.168.0.50).

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.

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.

There are two basic forms of WPA:

• WPA Enterprise (requires a Radius server)
• WPA Personal (also known as WPA-PSK)

Either can use TKIP or AES for encryption. Not all WPA hardware supports AES.

WPA-PSK is basically an authentication mechanism in which users provide some form of credentials to verify that they should be allowed access to a network. This requires a single password entered into each WLAN node (Access Points, Wireless Routers, client adapters, bridges). As long as the passwords match, a client will be granted access to a WLAN.

Encryption mechanisms used for WPA and WPA-PSK are the same. The only difference between the two is in WPA-PSK, authentication is reduced to a simple common password, instead of user-specific credentials.

The Pre-Shared Key (PSK) mode of WPA is considered vulnerable to the same risks as any other shared password system – dictionary attacks for example. Another issue may be key management difficulties such as removing a user once access has been granted where the key is shared among multiple users, not likely in a home environment.
