It looks like you are using WPA-EAP on your computer.unless you are running into the initial problem that most older hardware had. You may need to do a firmware upgrade on your device that is connecting to the router. Firstly you can not use WPA, you can use WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WEP.WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.It turns out that I was using a specified DNS server when I set up a static IP address for port forwarding for my u Torrent connection.According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.So what I did was just: 1) open network connections 2) click properties 3) in the GENERAL tab, click INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP) 4) click Properties 5) choose obtain DNS server automatically My internet worked afterwards.

id=214 I have also seen WPA - Enterprise as just WPA.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
When setting up WPA you will see the option for either a radius server (Enterprise, and you see this in the corporate environment) or a place to enter a passphrase (Pre Shared Key, PSK).
As long as you use the same options for both, you should be fine. WPA-TKIP or WPA-PSK is typically the names for personal WPA. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.
I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.If you are telling me that you are using WPA with a shared key on your router, then you are using WPA - Personal. You want to make sure you are using that option on your computer. You do not want to make sure you are not using WPA-EAP. This version requires a certificate server and a matching certificate on yout computer to connect to the wireless.
