Does HyperWRT firmware support WPA2?

    Hi, I would like to try HyperWRT firmware, but only if/when it supports WPA2. I search the forums almost daily to see what new firmware adds WPA2 support. So, my question is, does HyperWRT firmware support WPA2? I am currently using WRT54GV3[1].1_4.00.7_US_code.bin on my WRT54G v. 2 router and broadcom wireless 3.100.65.1.exe on my WPC54G v. 1.2 notebook adapter and having no problems running WPA2 AES.

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! 8)

    Thanks jagboy, you saved me some time and frustration.

    Also, I checked out the link to the unofficial HyperWRT firmware and it looks like the unofficial HyperWRT 2.1b1 is just a patch to the WRT54G v3.03.9 source code. I'm not sure I want to try that. Anyway, If I feel daring, could someone let me in on how I would go about applying this patch. Should I flash WRT54G v3.03.9 source code first and then apply the patch? If so, how do I apply this patch? The name of the patch file is: 2.1b1-3.03.9.patch.bz2 (48.8 kb), and I'm not sure what I'd have to do with it, (place it in a certain folder I'm guessing). Any help with that would be appreciated just for my own knowledge, but as I stated, I'll probably wait for the next official HyperWRT firmware. Thank You. 8)

    The firmware works fine, its been proved over and over again.

    Thanks for the reply A-ONE, but which firmware are you talking about? I'm sure that DD-WRT works fine since I read the thread about it daily, but jagboy says it doesn't support WPA2, which is a major factor in the firmware I choose. If you're talking about the unofficial HyperWRT, then I'll take your word for it that it works, but I'm not sure how to apply the patch, as I stated in my last post. Do you know how to apply this patch and do I have to flash the WRT54G v3.03.9 firmware first, (since I'm not using it now)?

    it looks like you might have to install the patch from the command line.
    using the wget "source of patch". or somthing. i will have to look into this. but maybe avenger could give you a better response.

    Yes, cool thanks!

    Thank you both A-ONE and jagboy for your replies and help. When I get a chance, I will try out this firmware.

    excuse me for responding before actually trying out the firmware. It does not contain WPA2. They may however update the source to the new code that was released today (which contains WPA2 for sure). Im sorry for the false replies.

    No problem A-ONE, I haven't had a chance to try anything out yet anyway. However, I did get an answer to my question with your help along with jagboy. So, your responses are much appreciated.

    Thank you!
