How do I configure WPA, 802.11x security with AP D-link DWL-2000AP+ and pcmcia card D-link dwl-G650+

  1. 802.1x authentication requires the use of a radius server on your network that has a
    computer certificate installed. Most home users would not have something like that.
    Windows 2000/2003 server can act as a radius server using IAS which is used to
    authenticated users through a remote access policy. You should have the option to use
    a "passphrase" for preshared key WPA on networks without a radius server. Just use a
    strong passphrase and write it down and keep it in a safe place [not in your laptop
    case] and you will be fine. -- Steve

    I have a minor problem with my access point. I am going to set up 802.11x
    security, but I don't know how. I am stopped when I have to fill out the
    input field "Radius Server:" !!! I can't figure it out. I also have to write
    an IP address. What should it be?? Where do I find it?? I don't have a fixed
    IP address on my ADSL connection.

    My network consists of a D-link DWL-2000AP+ access point and a D-link
    DWL-G650+ wireless network card. The network works fine with WEP 128-bit
    encryption, but I would like to use WPA because it is more secure. Anybody
    out there who can tell me how to set up access point and portable computer
    with Windows XP?

    Thanking you in anticipation,

    There should be at least two options for WPA, one "WPA-PSK" and one
    "WAP-Radius". You should pick the any one that doesn't include "radius".
