What is WPA, and is it better than WEP?
Posted by Gabriel Yu on 14 March 2008 06:06 AM
  • WEP (Wireless Equivalent Privacy) has been around for some time, and is supported on most wireless devices.
  • WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is newer, and provides stronger wireless security - consequently we recommend WPA over WEP.  Note however that not all wireless devices support WPA, and so it may not be practical to mix WEP and WPA on a wireless network. All current DrayTek wireless models (with a G at the end of the model number) support WPA.
  • WPA2 features increased security, and DrayTek firmware updates are recently starting to include WPA2.
