Wi-Fi Alliance urges users to use WPA2
Wi-Fi Alliance has launched a campaign to urge consumers to configure routers and devices with encryption WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) in its wireless Wi-Fi equipment.
WPA2 is available on all products that the company has labeled "Wi-Fi Certified." This standard replaces the original WPA security and has better security than WPA and other protocols including WEP (Wired Equivalent Protocol). The WEP encryption was introduced in 1997 and was largely supplanted by WPA and WPA2.
