Security Options
This information applies to the 5 GHz WiFi network.
If you change the WiFi security, select one of the following WiFi security options for the access point’s WiFi network:
None. An open WiFi network does not provide any security. Any WiFi device can join the network. We
recommend that you do not use an open WiFi network but configure WiFi security.
WPA2-PSK [AES]. This option is the default setting. This type of security enables WiFi devices that support
WPA2 to join the access point’s 5 GHz WiFi network. If you did not change the passphrase, the default
passphrase displays. The default passphrase is sharedsecret. WPA2 provides a secure connection but some
older WiFi devices do not detect WPA2 and support only WPA. If your network includes such older devices,
select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security.
If you change the passphrase, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join the
access point’s WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. This option is the default setting and the default WiFi passphrase is
printed on the access point label (see Access Point Label on page 8). This type of security enables WiFi
devices that support either WPA or WPA2 to join the access point’s 5 GHz WiFi network. However, WPA-PSK
[TKIP] is less secure than WPA2-PSK [AES] and limits the speed of WiFi devices to 54 Mbps.
To use this type of security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join the access
point’s WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA/WPA2 Enterprise. This type of security requires that your WiFi network can access a RADIUS server.
For information about configuring WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, see Configure WPA and WPA2 Enterprise WiFi
Security on page 29.
6. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
If you connected over WiFi to the network and you changed the SSID, you are disconnected from the
network.
7. Make sure that you can reconnect over WiFi to the network with its new settings.
If you cannot connect over WiFi, check the following:
If your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device is already connected to another WiFi network in your
area, disconnect it from that WiFi network and connect it to the WiFi network that the access point
provides. Some WiFi devices automatically connect to the first open network without WiFi security
that they discover.
If your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device is trying to connect to your network with its old
settings (before you changed the settings), update the WiFi network selection in your WiFi-enabled
computer or mobile device to match the current settings for your network.
Does your WiFi device display as an attached device? (See View Devices Currently on the Network
on page 41.) If it does, it is connected to the network.
Are you using the correct network name (SSID) and password?
