I have been tasked with upping the encryption on my wireless network from 128-bit WEP to WPA of any flavor. I would prefer to use WPA-PSK because it works best with our existing infrastructure. We have a couple dozen handheld scanners running Windows CE with Cisco 350 radios and the ACU connecting to 1200 series WAPs with the most current IOS. While checking to see if a firmware or utility upgrade would allow me to support WPA-PSK I found this post:
Whoops! Guess not!
So now I know that ACU will not support WPA-PSK.
Does anyone have a suggestion for an encryption solution using our existing hardware? Reading over related posts in this forum brings up mention of other supplicants which would work, but no specifics. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
You did not mention you version of CE or ACU, ACU version 2.60 with the corresponding image for the 350 card or later does support WPA either directly or with the windows aupplicant. you need to contact the scanner manufacturer for the new code if available for you models.
