PSK2 and WPA2???

    I have a WRT54G Wireless Router and WMP54G v4 PCI Cards. I updated the firmware on the router and updated the drivers on the PCI Cards. I now have an option on the router to select WPA2, which is what I want. The cards don't mention WPA2, only PSK2. Are they the same thing? Thanks in advance.

    It is not listed as certificed for WPA2 according to the Wi-Fi Org. I would try to set your outer to WPA2 personal and then the WMP54V4 to PSK2 and see if it works.

    WPA or WPA2???

    I did and it worked. But I also heard that WPA2 is backward compatible with WPA. So I wasn't sure if it was technically using WPA2. The linksys utility for my card just says "Security PSK2".

    id you set it to AES & TKIP on the router? Which supports both encryption types? The syntax of on Linksys routers is s bit confusing, the AES & TKIP may mean both WPA/WPA2 for that information someone else may know or query Linksys. On the my WRY54GX there is a setting for WPA Personal/WPA2 Personal. On my WRT54G there is a AES & TKIP under WPA Personal.

    WPA or WPA2???

    Yea, I set my router to AES only and it connects fine. I was assuming that AES was WAP2. That's the closest difference that I have gathered so far from WPA and WPA2 is AES and TKIP. My card gives the options of WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, PSK2, RADIUS, and LEAP. PSK2 automatically uses AES Encryption. I will have to assume that PSK2 is WPA2. Thanks for your input Howard6!
