Wpa what to choose?

Thu Mar 01, 2007 11:34 am

Hello

I am going to change from wep to wpa on my network.
I have over 200 radios to change so I want to get it right :-)

Rge defaut seems to have wpapsk wpapsk and tkip ticked.

Should I just stick with that? what is aes and eap, do I need them?

Thanks :-)

EAP is Extensible Authentication Protocol, that provides a lot of authentication methods for end-users. You will find more information in google.
Trivial scenario of used EAP,
RADIUS Server (that could provide different EAP authentication methods) - MikroTik AP (relaying autnetication to RADIUS) - Client with specific configuration to accept provided RADIUS security settings.

AES-CCM - more secure WPA encryption protocol, based on the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard).

You may use 'wpa-psk' or 'wpa2-psk', then user requires predefined 'psk' in wireless settings.
