Hi,

I can't get my 9800 to connect to my WiFi network.
I have an AP set to 2.4GHz, 802.11b/g/n and WPA2 encryption.
I'n PEP3 I specified the SSID, WPA/WPA2 encryption and the network key.
But the device is stuck on "Connecting...".
Are there any legacy settings I need to enable on the AP side?

TIA,
Sebastian

I have a Netgear AP set to "Enable 20/40 MHz Coexistence" to provide single channel legacy support. I also have configured the Mode setting of "Up to 54 Mbps". For security, I use the option "WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]"

As far as getting stuck on connecting, my 9800s can sometimes take a several minutes to establish a connection.

Thanks!
I finally managed to get a connection, limiting my AP to only WPA encryption.
With WPA+WPA2 or WPA2 only it didn't connect.

Is the 9800 (latest beta firmware) supposed to do WPA2 too or am I stuck with WPA?
Does anyone know?

Sebastian

WPA2 wasn't initially supported. I'm using WPA2 with the latest firmware 7.4.22 and PEP-3 (PEP-2 should also provide support). You should see it as an option within the Network tab of your System Properties screen.

Thanks for the confirmation!
I'll try to find the right settings then, to make WPA2 work.
