O2 Wireless Settings from WEP to WPA-PSK


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

My Sister recently got O2 and I am about to be connected next week. The O2 wireless router II is set to 64 but WEP, I want to set it to WPA-PSK or even WPA2-PSK but it just disconnects and loses connection to my PC. How do I do this properly please?

You need to use 10 characters for a key. It should be case sensitive too. There are key generators out there on the web, but I prefer to make my own up so that way I know what it is and can add more devices quickly.

ummm.... well it won't be able to reconnect as you changed the key. I think you have to do this wired.

So you clicked apply before setting a key you could use... whilst you were doing this on a wireless connection? Are you trying to make life harder?

Yep the only way now is for you to connect via the ethernet connection and set it up properly as BatBoy says..

No, no you misunderstood me. I chose the required setting, set an acceptable password and then clicked apply but it just stopped working full stop until I reset the factory settings via the reset button. I understand your point re: wieless so will do it wired but I am just wondering now if I will have to run the setup cd again?

The setup CD isn't needed for anything. Mine is still in its sleeve. It just supplies diagnostic and help software I think - and remote access from O2 support.

Did you change the settings on the PC to WPA after you changed them on the router and the connection dropped?

ahhh be moar clear lol.

We can't help you if your not clear and precise about what happened and what it is you want to do.
In this case you want to use WPA instead of WEP, and you said you set it up for WPA. Then after that you say it stopped working.

So the box stopped working (might be a faulty box) or the wireless client (you would expect the wireless client to lose connection since you changed the encryption protocol)?

What are you using to connect wirelessly?

Like Roberto says CD is useless, you don't need it. I've never taken it out of its sleeve.

You could try again, maybe it was just a blip.
