Secure wireless network security (wlan) is a network security feature that encrypts the traffic sent between your wireless network and the device you’re using to access the internet.
By default, your wireless networks use a symmetric encryption method to send data over the air.
If you want to encrypt your network, you have to change the encryption settings on your wireless router or switch.
Here’s how to change your wireless settings to use the same encryption algorithm for both the local and remote networks.
The wireless network you use to access a network with secure wireless security requires you to use a different encryption algorithm.
Secure wireless networks encrypt traffic from the local network to your remote network by using a different algorithm.
If your wireless devices do not use the encryption algorithm you have chosen, they will not be able to connect to your network.
To change the default encryption algorithm, open the Network settings, tap the “WiFi” menu and select “Advanced settings.”
Under Advanced settings, turn on the “Encryption mode” checkbox.
The encryption mode you choose will affect the encryption behavior of the traffic that your device sends to and from your wireless device.
The default encryption mode is 802.11a/b/g/n.
Under 802.1x encryption, the encrypted traffic is sent over a secure channel using a private key to protect your data.
Under AES encryption, encrypted traffic can be sent over an insecure channel using the public key to encrypt the data.
The preferred encryption algorithm is AES256, which is commonly used in encryption protocols such as Apple’s AOSP encryption software.
