WRT54G v5 WPA doesn't work?

    Dell Inspiron 6000 (centrino) with intel 2200bg wireless card in it running xp home sp2.

    I can connect and obtain an ip address via dhcp when security is disabled. The connection works fine.

    When I set WPA or WPA2 personal on (using either TKIP or AES) then I can get a wireless connection but it fails to assign an ip address via dhcp. at this point it will drop the connection and retry again. It looks like some part of the authentication is failing.

    I've just tried it with WEP security and it works fine.

    Has anyone experienced the same problems with WPA on the v5 or is it my intel centrino laptop?

    I don't have another wireless equipped laptop/pc to try with this router at the moment.

    Any feedback appreciated!
  2. Hi Surfpunk,

    what's your setting of Authentication Type ? (it's in the Advanced Wireless Settings tab).

    It should be set to Auto if you want to use WPA. Setting Shared Key in combination with WPA won't work.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Udo,

    Thanks for the reply. I did have it on Shared, I've set it to auto and retried using WPA and WPA2 with both AES and TKIP.

    Unfortunately they didn't work - at best it would give a 'limited connection' with no gateway set before dropping out.

    I guess I'll have to make to with WEP for now!

    *update* after much messing around I've now managed to get WPA and WPA2 working!

    The latest generic drivers ( for the 2200BG card from Intel certainly helped!
