Select your encryption type from the "Network Authentication" and "Data Encryption" drop downs.
Uncheck "The key is provided for me automatically" and enter and confirm your Network key.
I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.
In this window make sure you are in the "Association" tab.
You will need to enter your encryption information here in order to connect to your network.
According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.
So what I did was just: 1) open network connections 2) click properties 3) in the GENERAL tab, click INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP) 4) click Properties 5) choose obtain DNS server automatically My internet worked afterwards. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.
WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.
