WPA2 PSK Help

Message 1 of 7
(3,073 Views)

Hi, i just got verizon Fios and I changed it to WPA2 PSk AES using ASCII. It aways generates the same 26 digit/letter passphrase. Is it safe to use this key? Will other Verizon Fios customers in mny area have the same generarated phrase or is it random for everyone. Thanks for the help!

I like this key generator. It is another ISP's site I believe.

Which router do you have?  Actiontec rev. F?

Did you enter your own passphrase in the pre-shared key field?

Most people would eneter some passphrase that is meaningful for themselves rather than relying on something that the hardware manufacturer generated by using some rule that might end up creating the same key for everyone.

Not likely that my Maximum WPA Security (63 characters/504 bits) would be duplicated. But then it is not easy to enter or remember.
