ALERT: WPA-TKIP isn't secure - use WPA2 instead


WPA-PSK is vulnerable to offline attack. WPA-TKIP has been cracked.


  1. USE WPA-AES or WPA2 instead of WPA-TKIP (or WEP)

  1. USE A PASSPHRASE WITH MORE THAN 20 CHARACTERS. Examples: BAD: "vintage wine" GOOD: "floor hiking dirt ocean" (pick your own words, even longer is better) FOR HIGH SECURITY, USE MORE THAN 32 CHARACTERS.
