Wifi encryption type?
My dad asked me to update the wifi password at his business, as it is very long and he wants a custom password so the employees can easily access the network. If I recall correctly, the only business devices that connect to the network are two Macs—everything else is just employee smartphones.
It's a Motorola Netopia 3000 wifi router and it's currently set to "WEP - Manual." Which is the best wifi network encryption method, and can I set a custom password with it? Thanks!
I should add that my options are:
WEP - Automatic
WEP - Manual
WPA - 802.1x
WPA - PSK
OFF - No Privacy

WPA or WPA2 with AES encryption is all I ever use. I also use 64-character pseudo-random generated passwords with maximum entropy. You can use a secure password generator here. Never, ever use WEP. It can be cracked in less than 60 seconds. I don't know why manufacturers still include this horrible protocol.
