d link router and macbook question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey all,

i have a d link router and the wireless security is set up with WPA2 Personal encryption. but the problem is with what shows up in the macbook.

on the macbook, i can see my SSID in the list of networks around in my neighborhood and when i click on the wifi/airport taskbar icon in the top right and i select my router's SSID, it shows that it has WPA Personal encryption instead of WPA2 Personal encryption. why does it show WPA instead of WPA2?

but in system preferences/network settings/airport/preferred networks, i can see my SSID listed and under security, it shows WPA2 Personal which is correct.

any ideas why it does this? would appreciate any reply. thanks

Does it work?

If so.

Who cares?

thats not the point. yes the internet works fine, but i have it set to WPA2 Personal, not WPA Personal in my router.

but my macbook says WPA Personal in the drop down airport taskbar icon menu, but in network settings it shows WPA2 Personal correctly like it should.

so even though i have my router set with WPA2 Personal with AES only, why does my macbook say WPA Personal in the drop down airport icon?

must be a bug in the OS, the airport is probably the buggiest part of OS X

There would be no way the laptop could adjust the settings in the router. Especially with out logging in.
