I have 5 computers on my network, two belonging to roommates. If I change my security to WPA2 Personal on my Linksys router, does that mean that every time any of us shuts down our computer, we will have to enter the 63 digit password when we boot back up in order to be connected to the network?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Got an answer to my question
Since no one answered, I kept digging around and found this:
If you use the WPA2-Personal, you should use a password generator that will generate a 63 character password. Once you have changed the security setting on your router to WPA2-Personal, right click on your wireless network connection, go to "Properties", choose the new security setting WPA2-Personal, then enter your password twice in the fields. I found that putting the password in a notepad file and then copying and pasting it made it much easier. Even when the computer is rebooted, there is no need to re-enter the password.
We were able to set up all computers with one problem: on one computer Internet Explorer 7 wouldn't work. We found that there is a hotfix for Internet Explorer 7 that allows it to work with WPA2. You can get the hot fix here:
