WPA Personal authentication

WPA-Personal, also referred to as WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) mode, is designed for home and small office networks and doesn't require an authentication server. Each wireless network device encrypts the network traffic by deriving its 128-bit encryption key from a 256-bit shared key.

Use the following guidelines to configure WPA Personal authentication.
