By setting up WPA2 encryption you are securing your wireless network from unauthorized access.

SOURCE: i want to change the

Hey there! First of all you will need to go into your Router administration panel, to do this, plug in a LAN cable from one of the available ports on the router into your PC. Then open up your browser and type 192.168.1.1
You will get a login prompt, usually the username is admin and the password is admin but if that doesn't work look at the bottom of your Router for the specific details.
Once you are there go to the "Wireless" configuration tab, under Security change WPA2-Personal to WEP or PSK. After that, unplug your cable from your PC and restart your router.
Have fun :)

Try the following:

1. If you want WPA2 encryption on your router, (which also have higher security and compatibility issues with wireless cards), you could try WPA2-TKIP (which is standard encryption and made compatible for all wireless cards) or WPA2-AES (for specific wireless cards that are unable to connect to TKIP encryption)

2. If Step 1 won't work, try to lower your security encryption to WPA-PSK (either TKIP or AES) and try again. If this works, your IPAD2's wireless card doesn't support WPA2 encryption yet.

If all of the above fails, I do not recommend WEP since it's easily cracked (for advanced users) but you could try it as a last resort.


Good luck.

My Chromebook netbook won't connect to my home wifi


That is weird. Does the Chromebook see the wireless router? I just looked on Google's Chromebook website and it says that the Chromebook works with any security setting. What type of Wifi router do you have at home?
This is the Google page talking about Wifi connection issues.

Your laptop should be able to automatically find the network name and security type. (You would have set up all of this, by the way.)
You should then type in your security key/password (you should have set this up when setting up router for first time, also) and then you should be connected to the internet.
Your laptop might not have wireless capabilities, so you might have to buy a wireless network adapter.

Cannot connect wifi with my iPad and Mac Bool Pro. I have put my password (WPA), but not able to connect.


Both should connect OK: first ensure that Wifi is enabled an configured for each service.

In order to connect to a Wifi service you need to know/have the correct information for each network/router you want to connect to:
  • Broadcast or SSID : Case sensitive ID.
  • Security Type : NONE, SHARED, WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Personal or WPA2-Enterprise
  • Encrytion Type : AES or TKIP
  • Network Security Key: normally entered in Hex format (2chars pairs)
Hope it helps.

How do i lock my router so my signal is not stolen


Follow the directions in the user manual that came with the router to enable wireless security. The best type of security to use at the moment is WPA2/WPA personal. Find the portion of the user manual that discusses WPA2 or WPA configuration and follow the procedure to enable this feature on your router. You will also need to update the setting on your WiFi enabled computers and smart devices with the WPA2/WPA passphrase information.
Had you provided the make and model number of the router in your question, I would have provided a link to your user manual and provided some tips as to how to perform the work.

Can i set my samsung phone to scan for wireless networks ..i want to use my own internet on my phone


u forgot to mention the kinda fone we are working with but i am going to assume wave samsung
When you turn the Wi-Fi toggle on it immediately connects to the router...WPA2-Enterprise authentication isn't supported on the CERTAIN SAMSUNG yet. Software / driver thing. It's already been reported.
Works great with WPA2-Personal and WAP secured access points.

The phone won't display WiFi access points that it doesn't have the ability to connect to.
