Wireless nightmare with D-Link 2100AP Wireless access point...

Post by Kontaminat » Mon, 18 Dec 2006 00:52:09


I've worked in IT for a number of years, but only recently have been
configuring wireless networks, whether it's a wireless router, or a
wireless access point.

I opt for a D-Link 2100AP. Automatically - i.e. NO security it works
with my dads Dell laptop, AND my Asus laptop.

An 'open' access point simply isn't good enough for my security needs.
I've tried using all sorts of encryption 'mehtods' that both the router
and the laptops should support!

I cannot get a connection!!! It's driving me crazy!

One issue seems to be the Asus, and the Dell both have their own
'Wireless connection utilities' that function completely differently to
each other and different to the Windows wireless configuration settings.

Does anyone know of a good website, or a step by step guide to get my
wireless access point working with both laptops, and in a secured way? I
can ill afford someone next door browsing my network and using my
internet connection!

I have a broadband modem, going into a router, the wireless access point
then connects to one of 5 ports in the router.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi
Do not generate the security with passphrase, generate in the Router Hex
String, and copy it to all Wireless Devices security entries.
