PassPhrase for WPA? (from BigWarpGuy, 23:27:54) ^
I have a D-Link WBR1310 wireless router. To setup WPA, it asks for a 'passphrase'. At the risk of sounding dumb, what is a 'passphrase'? Is it a phrase used as a password? Is it something else?

seems they mean 'password'.

Usually it is set to something very simple by default in factory and should be mentioned somewhere in the manual.

Thank you for the information. The printed manual is small but there is one on the cdrom that is more detailed. Thank you for the reply.

Me just came up:

some routers also have a sticker on it where such information (default settings) is given, like

Preshared Key (may be they name it pass phrase)

But as far as I remember, OS/2 does not support WPA/WPA2, only the (no longer considered safe) WEP encryption.

There was mention of WPA/WPA2 at the WarpStock Windsor lecture on Wifi. I will check with the site; they have a forum at http://www.warpstock.org . Thank you for the information.

I set it. Thanks for the information. My wireless network is now secure (I hope :) ).
