Answer: This WNA016 supports all the WiFi encryption method, it can auto match
the encryption method of your WiFi network. You need to configure your
encryption method in your WiFi router, the most secure one is WPA2, then WPA.
We do not recommend using WEP, it is not safe though it is encrypted. Also, you
can choose the encryption algorithm, the best one is AES. We do not suggest
using TKIP, though TKIP is secured, while it lowers your network speed. So
WPA2-AES(also called WPA2-PSK) is the best one, it is most secure, while
also offer optimal WiFi network speed.
