I was wondering why are we using WPA2 security? Why cant we use WPA or WEP which have wider device supports?
Mostly because it takes half an hour to crack WPA and WEP and somewhat more to crack WPA2?
Don't know what somebody will do by cracking those, though.
dude.... what hardware r u talking about ?????
Stop this nonsense...Here in RKB we are having problems to acess basic internet also........
WPA2 is the new industry standard encryption technique because of better security, difficulty to crack it, and also because there are fewer restrictions on the network key structure so you can set any word of your choice as the key and still get a lot better security than a more complex WPA or WEP key.
WPA2 is quite unsafe without an authority certificate, which our insti hasnt used while implementing WPA2. And sadly windows, android n iphones allow connecting to an WPA2 'secure' network without an authority cert.
Tho it prevents common outsiders to use our precious bandwidth, but a serious cracker could break into our current network n snoop around n read out data (passwords etc). N a less serious one, with a knack of using google can do it as well.
What really has made sites secure is direct server-to-computer encrypted communication, 128 Bit or more; not WPA2
