    Hiya,

    I was just wondering which brands of Wireless APs support
    WPA encryption or does it come on al brands ?

    My organisation is planning on investing on them so I
    reckon it would be best to go for something that is WPA
    facility.

    hope to see some help.

    cheers,
    Jo

    Hello Joseph,
    www.wi-fi.org lists all products that they certify to be WPA capable.
    When buying new AP/adapters it might be a good idea to check that the
    product support AES encryption, I guess 802.11b adapters (atleast older)
    might have problems supporting this encryption and instead only support TKIP
    (RC4). (If I'm not mistaken AES is optional in WPA and mandatory in WPA2,
    wi-fi.org will start certifying WPA2 capable products in september)
    Don't forget to set up a radius authentication environment, don't rely on a
    pre shared key.
