In order to connect it to my home network without me having to add a second access point V2 would have to support WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA2-PSK (AES). I can add a second access point (but would prefer not to) but then V2 would have to support an open network (no encryption) or WEP 64 or 128 with a hex password.
Here is what the CyberQ Wifi supports.
- WEP - Wired Equivalent Privacy. Supposed to give roughly the same level of security as a wired network. This was the original
- security setting on wireless networks. In the CyberQ Wifi it must be a value containing the characters 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F
- (hexadecimal value). WEP 40 requires 10 Characters, WEP104 requires 26 characters.
- WPA - Wi-Fi Protected Access. Provides better encryption than WEP and also has user authentication.
- WPA2 - a more secure version of WPA which provides "government grade" security. There are two versions of WPA2 - Personal &
- WPA AUTO – Automatically selects a WPA or WPA2 network
- WPA or WPA2 PASS – Uses a pass phrase instead of hex values.
- OPEN – No Encryption pass required.
The CyberQ Wifi works just fine on my network.
Based on his earlier post about V2 it should be based in ZIGBEE.
