Customized protection with multiple security levels to choose from.

* High-level security: WPA provides enhanced, interoperable security that increases the level of data protection and access control for wireless LANs. It keeps unwanted users from accessing a network without the proper permission and password.

* Added high-level security: IPSec, PPTP or L2TP Virtual Private Network (VPN) pass-through provides secure transmissions via wireless VPN tunnels.

* Basic security: 64, 128 and 152-bit Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) provides industry-standard data encryption. Each network has a unique passphrase that is entered manually to activate WEP. It's dynamic, as well - the key will be changed periodically to prevent intruders from getting onto the network.
