    How many of you guys are using WPA security on your devices?

    I've got a Netgear DG834GT and WG111v2 adapter, but having trouble getting the adapter to stay connected to the router when using WPA. It keeps going disconnecting from the router every 5secs. Everything works fine in WEP mode, but I think I want to start using WPA mode now since it's slightly more secure.

    Is it WPA or WPA2?

    WPA-PSK.....using TKIP or whatever it's called.

    That is odd. What OS are you using? If you are using Vista have you tried WPA2?

    um, I dont think WPA2 is available on this model. At least, I can't see it being available with the latest firmware.
    The adapter is on a machine running XP. Have never been able to get it to stay connected on WPA so had to revert to WEP.
