Hello All! We recently purchased this AP for a "quick" proof of concept for Wireless N in our facility. I purchased the stand alone model in the hopes that it would be a quick setup to test with. I'm familiar with routing and switching with Cisco however not so much on the security / wireless side. My goal is to enable the 802.11n radio along with something like WPA2 with a pre-shared key (no radius server etc). Just something quick that's moderately secured to test with. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
This laptop was only b/g compatible and not wireless-a compatible. As far as enabling WPA, you can go to the encryption page and enable either TKIP or AES as the cipher on your radios. Then, go back to SSID Manager and check the WPA box, choose Mandatory from the drop-down, and enter a passphrase.
Yes. That check box should have done the trick. Another way to enable it is to go into the "SSID Manager" page and scroll to the very bottom. There, you can select the SSID you wish to broadcast from the drop down.
