Default Re: Does Curve 8530 support WPA2 with AES (or WPA2 with CCMP)?

I got mine CURVE 8530 working on home wireless today.

Home Wireless Router: Linksys E1000, WPA2-Personal

This is the way I did:
1. On my 8530, got "Setup Wi-Fi Network"
2. "Next"
3. "Scan For Network"
4. Click on your home wireless network it found.
5. BB tells me"This Wireless Router Supports... PIN(Which your Blackberry will generate) click Next.
6. Enter this PIN into my wireless router: xxxxxxx
7. Login to my Linksys E-1000, go to "Wireless/Basic Wireless Settings", at "Configure View" choose "Wi-Fi Protected Setup"
8. I see "2. If your client device has a Wi-Fi Protected Setup PIN number, enter that number here ", enter the pin your 8530 generates, then "Register".
9. a congratulation message appears.
10. It takes about 1 minute for my 8530 connects to the network, and I see WI-FI icon on your 8530 desktop turns to white color.
11. I am connected!
