ade.h I posted a subject “encryption disabled when trying to connect” on Sunday 26th Feb, which I details the router etc. I don’t mean to create a duplicate thread here and annoy those that may be able to assist.
Under this subject I am curious as to what the message on the laptop means and the implications.
I think the router is doing its job in it that it wont let my laptop connect, but can a third party determine what the PSK is as a result of the laptop trying to connect without encryption?
As I said above, perhaps not clearly enough, WPA actually is encryption, therefore you have no WPA and and an open network. The inability to connect is because of this. The key is not actually broadcast by the router; the router simply waits for a client device to provide, like giving a password to a sentry.
