I found that with firmwares 1.06 and before.. the only wpa option that
I was using was the "auto wpa" option..
with firmware 1.07.. they add a wpa only choice... this allows my
devices which wouldnt work to work, however the windows connect speed
is 54mbps and the actual throughput is 22mbps (G/b speeds).. I've
emailed dlinks tech support with no response thus far, but at least the
devices are working.
With 1.08beta.. wpa only mode is only getting throughput of a bout
So that said, it seems the only remotely viable option if you want wpa
to work with most devices is to use 1.07 "wpa only" for now (though
there is one device which would connect but would also timeout after a
while.. that was using its native b internal card.. with n, everything
is fine though.
