    I am on my gigaset router management page. Ive gone to home network tab, clicked advanced settings, then clicked Configure the Local Gateway Wireless Network. Inside, my security mode is at "disable security". I click begin wireless wizard and the first page is already setup for me so I click next and the page it brings me to gives me the option to change my security mode from "disable security" to "wep 64-bits" or "wep 128 bits". There are two other options also. "wpa-psk tkip" and "wpa2-psk aes". Which should i select? It is telling me "These settings must be identical to your wireless client devices." Ive tried them all and nothing seems to be working. I have tried the 64 and 128 bit options but when Im asked to make a password and select a 64 bit key(1-4) and hit next, it takes me right to the same page i was just on. If I type a password and simply click "finish" it does lock my wireless network, but wont let any wireless devices get on and says the password is incorrect. I would like to thank whoever has the headache from reading this and hope you give me an answer, or at least some help. thanks.

    The strongest encryption is WPA2-PSK AES. However, if you have a device more than two or three years old it will not support that so use WPA-PSK TKIP. WPA has not been broken. With either use a strong passphrase (most importantly not a dictionary word).

    Only bother with WEP if you have an ancient device that, even with a driver update, will not support WPA.

    For "shared key" enter "T3rryN3t # 1" (w/o the quotes). :) Seriously, enter any passphrase there you want and best to use combination of upper and lower case and numbers and special characters. I like to use something I can remember for a day or two w/o looking for where I wrote it down under the router. That passphrase is what you will enter when prompted when you try to connect computers and other devices to your wireless network

    The default 3600 seconds for group key renewal is fine.
