The authentication methods supported by WL-500gP include: Open, shared key,
WPA-PSK, WPA, and Radius with 80.211x.
This option disables authentication protection for wireless network. Under
Open mode, any IEEE802.11b/g client can connect to your wireless network.
This mode uses the the WEP keys currently in use for authentication.
WPA stands for WiFi-Protected Access. WPA provides two
security modes: WPA for enterprise network, and WPA-PSK for home and SOHO
users. For enterprise network, WPA uses the already existing RADIUS server for
authentication; for home and SOHO user, it provides Pre-Shared Key (PSK) for
user identification. The Pre-Shared Key consists of 8 to 64 characters.
Radius with 802.11x:
Similar with WPA, this solution also uses RADIUS server
for authentication. The difference lays on the encryption mothods: WPA adopts
TKIP or AES encryption methods, while Radius with 802.11x does not provide
