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.

Trying to connect my wireless adapter. what is the wpa key


A WPA key is an encryption key for wireless networking devices. If you want to use a wireless router, you would need the WPA key that is setup in the router itself, in order for you to connect to it. You can see the WPA key on the security screen of your wireless router. Hope this helps.

I have an old laptop that has a linksys wireless-b notebook adapter and my new computer with a linksys router attached is a linksys dual-band wireless-n. I can not get the notebook to link to the router...


Most of the newer routers use a newer type of encryption (WPA or WPA2) which is not supported by older 802.11b hardware.

Either set the Linksys router to use WEP encryption, or get a newer 802.11g card for the old laptop which can use WPA or WPA2 encryption.

Older versions of Windows XP also need to be upgraded to Service Pack 3 or apply this patch:

Hi just iwant to put security # or password on my d- link router so imean nobody can can get acsses to the internet. thanks


WPA is a strong form of wireless encryption, however not all wireless adapters support this feature. If your wireless adapter does not support WPA you will want to use WEP to secure your wireless network.

You can find information on configuring your WBR router for WEP here

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the WBR series router into the address bar (default is http://192.168.0.1).

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

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the left-hand side.

Step 4: Select the type of WPA encryption you would like to use with your wireless adapter from the Security Mode drop down menu. For WPA-PSK select Enable WPA- Personal Wireless Security (enhanced).

Note: All wireless products on the wireless network must have the same level of security to connect to the network.

Step 5: In the WPA Personal section, configure the following:

  • Select the Cipher Type
  • Select the PSK or EAP
  • Enter your Passphrase
  • Re-Enter your Passphrase
Step 6: Click the Save Settings button to save your settings.

I cannot set WPA under Windows XP... help please...


WPA usually has two formats for encryption. They are TKIP and AES.

Please make sure you get the right type of encryption from your router, the correct SSID for your wireless network and the correct WPA pass code.

In Windows XP, you need to go to

Start/Control Panel/Network Connections
Double click on your Wireless Adapter
Enable it if it requests for you to Enable it
If not, then a window will appear showing you your Wireless Adapter
Click on Wireless Connections
Select the appropriate SSID that you're working with in your Preferred Networks list
Click Properties, then a new window will appear
This window will show you the properties of this particular SSID
Here you can set your pass code and the type of security you've got set up in your router. Since it is WPA then you can select WPA from the drop down box and then select either TKIP or AES.
Make sure you've got the right settings selected to match your router. Or else you will not be able to communicate between your computer and your router.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to vote for me. Let me know how you made out.

Some **** keeps cracking my password and changing my router name


Change the wireless security to WPA or WPA2 if available. Make sure you use a password that is made up of both numbers and letters.

You can also enable Mac Address filtering and disable the ssid broadcast.

Dont forget to change the router admin password too.

That should keep him out.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

The WPA key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless cards in the laptop and desktop needs to be configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop and desktop computer to communicate with the router.
You can view the encryption settings in the router's wireless settings or on the laptop's wireless card settings and then apply these encryption settings to the desktop's wireless card (ie. the SSID and the WPA encryption).

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...


I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Wpa Encryption


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.
