Secure Wireless Network WPA Encryption Support

Starting August 15, 2011, UBC IT is removing support for WPA wireless encryption on the 'ubcsecure' wireless network due to the weaknesses in the WPA encryption protocol. All users on the 'ubcsecure' wireless network must now use WPA2 encryption. Users should run the Autoconnect Tool  to re-configure their 'ubcsecure' wireless network profile for WPA2 encryption, or follow the appropriate documentation below to manually re-configure the wireless network profile.
