It should be in wireless properties of the router under "Security". Some older router do not support WPA-PSK, check the manual to confirm. You must be logged on as a Root or administrator.
reset your router to factory settings. Password with be the default until you change it
The security key is the password for the wireless router. It'll show up if the wireless encryption is : WEP WPA-PSK (TKIP) WPA2-PSK(TKIP) WPA-PSK (AES) WPA2-PSK (AES).
- WPA requires Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), and it supports Advanced Encryption System (AES), which provides a stronger encryption - WPA2 requires AES, and it does not support TKIP
WPA2 is capable of using several different encryption types. WPA2 (as opposed to WPA) introduced CCMP, a new AES-based encryption mode. In addition, WPA2 can operate in PSK, also known as Personal mode, which is designed for home and small office networks that don't require the complexity of an 802.1X authentication server. The wireless network device encrypts the network traffic using a 256 bit key. The key may be entered either as a string of 64 hexadecimal digits, or as a passphrase of 8 to 63 ASCII characters. If the ASCII characters are used, the 256 bit key is calculated by applying the PBKDF2 key derivation function to the passphrase and using the SSID as the "salt"or initialization parameter and 4096 iterations of HMAC-SHA1.Answers.com
Wireless keys are stored in the memory of the access point; to retrieve it you would need to know the admin password to get into the configuration page.
I'm using window-xp, (sp3), i know how to make an adhoc network, and I'm using it now, i even know how to share internet in window xp among two computers(using adhoc), I've been searching for this all over the internet, and never find an answer to share wpa2 in window xp, my computer is able to connect to wpa2 but this is not what i want, i want the pc to share the wpa2, because my phone is not supported adhoc, but only wpa2 and other wifi,, connectify doesn't work, if there's a way to make my window xp share (wpa2) wireless, it would be a wish for me to know it ,, i want to download some app in my phone, but it can't connect to adhoc,, so is there a way to make my xp share wpa2 wireless?
The three main methods of encryption for 802.11 wireless networks are the following: # WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) # WPA (WiFi Protected Access) # WPA2 (WiFi Protected Acess)
You have to have a router capable of supporting WPA2 as well as a wireless adapter in your computer should support it too. If you are sure that you satisfy both, you need to log in your router, and in settings for wireless network security choose WPA2.
Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) builds upon WPA, which makes them very similar. Both support identical Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types in an enterprise environment, as well as allowing pre-shared keys (PSKs). Group key transmission is performed by the two-way handshake, while the four-way handshake is used for unicast generation. The main differences are as follows: - WPA requires Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), and it supports Advanced Encryption System (AES), which provides a stronger encryption - WPA2 requires AES, and it does not support TKIP
WEP is the most basic and is easily broken by knowledgeable people. WPA2 is newer and is much more seure.
The PSP does not support WPA2, and there's nothing you can do about it from the PSP's side. You'd have to change your router settings to WPA at least.
Steve, this is a temporary silutoon. With pre-shared keys (PSK) under WPA/WPA2, Firesheep currently wouldn't work. But it's a simple matter on a shared-key network to use a tool like aircrack-ng to use the passphrase for WPA/WPA2 Personal to derive (not crack) the necessary transient keys for each station. All someone needs to do is update Firesheep or bundle it with aircrack in a simple package.802.1X (WPA/WPA2 Enterprise flavor) provides unique master key material to every station, making cracks currently impossible. This is why Firesheep cannot work on corporate networks. (Hole196 is a risk, but it's a very particular and minimal risk that involves physical proximity, legitimate access to get on the network, and other factors.)
