- None (encryption is disabled) Select this option if no encryption is used in your wireless network.
- Enabled – Use Static WEP Keys Wireless networks that implement this type of security encrypt and decrypt the data that is transmitted and received through the wireless network using pre-defined alphanumeric or hexadecimal strings (keys). Typically, you only enter these keys once. The keys are then automatically associated with your wireless adapter each time the adapter is inserted or your computer is started.
- Enabled – Use Wi-Fi Protected Access – Pre Shared Key (WPA-PSK) Wireless networks that implement this type of security require users to authenticate with a Pre Shared Key. The data that is transmitted and received through the wireless network can be encrypted and decrypted using WEP or TKIP data encryption.
- Enabled – Use IEEE 802.1x Authentication Wireless networks that implement IEEE 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) security require users to authenticate their identity with a username and password or Credentials before being allowed to connect. Data is encrypted and decrypted using either static or dynamic WEP keys. Dynamic keys are session-based and are generated each time an authentication attempt is made.
- Enabled – Use 802.1x – EAP Cisco (LEAP) This is a version of EAP that is available only when a Cisco wireless adapter or Cisco-compliant wireless adapter is installed in your system. It uses authentication and dynamic encryption keys to secure the wireless network.
