Wizard to help set up WPA

The FiOS Router supports WPA, but it's not really obvious how to set it up.

Maybe software that helps set up a WPA password/change the SSID instead of being forced to use WEP?

I agree that it needs to be easier to set up WPA/WPA2. But I would rather that Verizon restructure the dialog on the router itself to make it more obvious how to do it rather than inventing a new tool, and then enourage users in the documentation to use WPA. Just a thought....

I am pretty sure the "In-home Agent" has that option, Malex

Malex-

 

I'll have this looked into for you, but in the meantime, you might want to take a look at In Home Agent.
