Wireless Security

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Patrick Parks, Jul 20, 2005.

  1. I am looking for a wireless security feature for my access points. I am
    told that I can use WEP and there is a feature to have new keys
    automatically generated and sent to the clients on a set frequency. I
    would prefer this method vs having to change all of the WEP keys on the
    clients every month. Can someone point me in the right direction for
    this? Thanks

    Did they tell you WEP for the new keys or WPA. WPA has a global key which
    changes depending on your settings. It is also more secure than WEP.

    Go to the Microsoft site and look for a page that explains the different
    type of security protocols.

  3. Patrick,

    Many access points now support WPA/WPA2 that is more secure that WEP. In WPA
    there is a key exchange that automatically takes place between the Access
    Point and the wireless client at a customizable interval. This provides an
    alternative to WEP where a manual change of the keys is involved.

    For more details look up

    Thanks
