Re: I have my router set to WPA buy still shows as an unsecured networ
Double check your router configuration. If it shows up in Vista as
unsecured, WPA isn't turned on in your router.
You want WPA2-Personal, if at all available, then WPA, and WEP is
nothing else is available. Set the Pre-Shared Key and then you should
be up and running.
