    What Encryption standard you use on your Home network?

    For those of you who have internet, which is obviously everyone reading this unless your not @ home, have probably got wireless too.
    I was Wondering what Encryption standard do you use on your home network from computer to Wii, or bigger ones.

    Theres:

    > WEP - very popular, but easy to hack

    > WPA - much securer

    > WPA2 - the most securest, but not available on many devices

    > TKIP - I've never heard of this one

    > PEAP - Never heard of this one either

    Which one do you use to securely share your internet connection with your Wii?
    I use WPA, I was told it's much securer than WEP, but compensates by sacrificing Internet speed.

    Edit: i forgot, do some of you even know about this stuff, "wiichat" members will sort you out, feel free to ask about Network security here too!

    WPA, my router doesn't support anything better. My primary reason to move from WEP to WPA is because I'm tired of typing the 16 letter Hex keys.

    One that doesn't randomly capitalize words, apparently.

    "most securest"???? Geesh...

    > TKIP - I've never heard of this one
    It's a security protocol that WPA can use. AES is better though.

    PEAP - Never heard of this one either

    WPA2, of course. I do more on my network than play my Wii, and WEP is too easy to break into.

    TKIP and PEAP aren't other Encryption standards.

    WEP is basically a WEP encrpytion.

    When you set up a WPA or WPA2 connection, you are able to choose between two different encryption methods TKIP or AES. Some routers, allow you to set up a TKIP AND AES connection that way you can connect via either method.

    My campus usues PEAP. It's not a connection type, you can use it along with WPA or WPA2. It's method to authenticate your users, basically by back checking security certificates against those stored at server databases, and may also require you to put in a certain username and password. I don't see it useful nor pratical at a home.

    Of course all of this could be totally wrong, so correct me if anyone knows better.

    Sremick, I understand that messages in poor English can be annoying, but Singhson actually types pretty well by the standards of the intarwebz. You can clearly understand what he's saying, so why bother taking apart all the spelling and grammar errors in his post? :S Anyway, as someone with an uncapitalised username, who feels the need to use four question marks at a time, I don't think you're in a position to criticize other people's language skills.

    Back on topic, I use WPA encryption, which is annoying since it means I have to sit near the PC with a dongle plugged in whenever I want to play my DS online :\ But at least the Wii can connect using WPA.
