Default WiFi Security Setting in 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so after my last post (lost in the server debacle) I was able to go into my Linksys router and add a password via WPA-TPIK settings. Up to that point my network was "open."

Only question I have is where do I enter the new LAN password in my 8320?

Under Options>Wifi Connections>Linksys (what I named the network) I set it to Security Type: Pre Shared Key and then entered the password.

My device sees the network, but isn't accessing it. This is probably a simple fix - but I'm missing it.

It seams I don't have an option for the WPA TPIK type security on my 8320?

It should see the security type and ask you for it when you first setup the network on the BB.

Yep! You are correct sir! I just needed to delete the profile I had in the bb and reacquire it so it would prompt me. I love this board! Thanks for the help.
