WPA2-PSK [AES]. WPA2 provides a secure and fast connection but some older WiFi devices do not
detect WPA2 and support only WPA. Select WPA2 to allow 802.11n devices to connect to the 2.4 GHz
band of the guest WiFi network at the fastest speed. If your network includes older devices that do not
support WPA2, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security.
To use WPA2 security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join the
2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. This type of security enables WiFi devices that support either
WPA or WPA2 to join the 2.4 GHz band of the guest 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 WPA + WPA2 security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join the
2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
Passphrase The passphrase that provides users access to the guest WiFi network in the 2.4 GHz
band. The passphrase is also referred to as the password or key.
