Blogcast showing how to secure a home wireless network via WPA – updated to point to the new blogcasts


This post has been replaced by a series of five blogcasts as quite a bit has changed since I wrote this post over three years ago – specifically Windows Vista has a different user interface. The replacement blogcasts are as follows:


How to secure a wireless network: Part 1 of 5 – Enabling WPA on a wireless router


How to secure a wireless network: Part 2 of 5 – How to change the SSID


How to secure a wireless network: Part 3 of 5 – Reconfiguring a Vista client to connect to your WPA secured access point


How to secure a wireless network: Part 4 of 5 Connect using WPA for the first time on Windows Vista


How to secure a wireless network: Part 5 of 5 – Connecting using WPA for the first time on XP


There’s an additional blogcast that you may find interesting too titled How to secure a wireless network: How to view the advanced wireless interface on Windows Vista


Note: the original post was worded as follows:


“I’ve recorded a Blogcast(short focused webcast) which demonstrates how to secure a home wireless network using Wireless Protected Access(WPA). The Blogcast itself can be accessed via this link. I show how to configure a LinkSys wireless access point to mandate WPA for all client connections and I show how to configure a Windows XP SP2 client to use WPA.”
