How to change (or update) wap to wpa encryption on ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter
Hy, im user ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter and i have problem with conection with router. Router has wpa -psk encryption and my ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter has only (probobly) wap encryption. I know that is a quite problem. And i ask if i can download some new driver's? Or i have to buy new wifi card for my pc?

Re: how to change (or update) wap to wpa encryption on...
With this Asus wireless B adapter even the new driver dont support WPA wireless security , because right now sicne WPA is a much newer and higher type of wireless encryption only some wireless B adapter supports that and sorry to say this wireless adapter that you have don't support it even with the latest driver so it will be better to get a new wireless G adapter that supports WPA 100% , you can get the wireless adapter from Asus or from other wireless device manufacturer like Linksys, Netgear. Dlink and Belkin....

First you need to make sure the Asus computer has a wifi adapter either inbuilt or through a separate usb or pcmia card.
Then you need to make sure if you have a wifi router that it is not using encryption.
The encryption could be WPA or WEP coding. If you do not know these codes and if you are the owner of th wifi router, then reset the router and chose new WEP or WPA code which you then record for use with your laptop or any other future wifi devvice that you may use.
If you need further assistance then provide model number and Operating system on your Asus computer Also provide make and model of the wi fi router.
This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system. Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it will work.
You will need to turn on the WPA or WEP security encryption on your router. You can get to the router settings by using a computer connected directly to the router using a lan cable. You will need to use 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 on your internet browser. This will take you to a screen asking for a user name and password. The default setting is nothing for the username and password is "admin". From there you can turn on the WEP or WPA encryption and create a passkey. Then each computer will need to have the passkey stored to gain connection to the router. This will also keep anyone else from connecting to your router without the passkey. And make sure to change the user name and password for your router so no one can change the settings on it.
If the wireless card is an old model it possibly won't support WAP encryption. The wireless router most likely supports both WEP and WAP encryption.
WEP is not as secure as WAP so use the highest bit encryption that is available to you.
Im assuming that your main computer is a wired computer or connected to the network via an ethernet cable, there is no way to check it because the WPA Encryption is for the wireless only. If you enable WPA encryption on your wireless network, all of the wireless computer should connect first and used the WPA key you set on your network. Once the profile of your network is saved on your computers, they will just automatically connect everytime they are detecting your network.
WEP and WAP mmmmmm.
So WEP is Wireless Encryption Protocol and WAP is Wireless Application Protocol. WAP is used in cell phones so i am presuming you actually mean WPA?
The wg511t provides the highest available level of industry standard 128-bit WEP encryption, and it’s
upgradable to Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security.
Here are the instructions to enable WPA. http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101675.asp
WPA is set from the router so if it is not supported on the router it is not supported on your card.
It is router dependant.
What router do you have.
Let me know if this is helpful at all.
First you must choose a common encryption strategy for your home network. (Yes I am assuming Home Network)
In most consumer routers you activate encryption on the wireless services of the router. After doing so you must also actiate encryption services on the wireless adapters that communicate with the wireless router. The names of the encryption services in the wireless router and wireless adapter are WPA and WEP. It is important to assure all wireless adapters to connect to the wireless router can handle the encryption chosen because the router will only perform one. There are options within each technique such as the number of bits of the keys -- the longer the better but only as long as the shortest device can support. WPA is preferable to WEP because it was designed to correct weaknesses in the WEP standard and implementation. However if there is even a single device to be connected that cannot do WPA you must do WEP or replace the device WPA in home systems often have a couple of other attribute being WPA-PSK and algorithm of TKIP -- which again every wireless adapter and the wireless router/access point must support.
To procede further in a sane manner you need to identify all wireless devices that will participate in your wireless network and determine their capablities for encryption. This is generally done searching manufacturer websites under support looking for user guides and firmware updates. Sometimes a devices capabilities in the manual require firmware updates to be true for the device. Once that is figured out the standards for your network can be set and the actual implementation can proceed. You will probably want a working wired computer to maintain access to the outside world for assistance if anything goes wrong. You also want to track your changes and know how to back things out incase things become too difficult.
If you have any additional questions or would like to a review of your plan or assistance determining a plan gather up the appropriate manufacturer's names and models and I will assist as time permits.
