I'm assuming Kindle 3 will work with WPA encryption?

Hi,

Just wanted to make doubly sure that the Kindle 3 would be able to work with wifi networks that have the WPA encryption on?

WEP, WPA, WPA2, Personal, not Enterprise.

I do hope no one is still using WEP.

I saw some one in some post in some forum some where say that they were using WEP. Go figure.

I know of at least a dozen people still using WEP.

WEP is perfectly fine where I live. The signal doesnt extend past our house and we dont use it for anything special. I know, go figure.

Same here, I live in the sticks, the only neighbor that has the slimmest of chance of getting a weak signal is an elderly gentleman who doesn't even own a cell phone

But I will probably change over to WPA anyway for no other reason than: Because I Can!

I know people who are stuck with WEP because they or their kids have a Nintendo DS which stupidly only works with WEP. The way Nintendo designed it means that it can't get a software upgrade to WPA support. You need to buy a DSi to get WPA.

I ran a Kindle (3g,WiFi) on a WPA home network while using an IP spoofer with no problems
from the Kindle at all. I've ordered a Kindle Touch (not here yet) and expect no problems
with that same home netwrork, BTW, Caliber also runs in that network with no problem.

Many modern Wifi routers allow mutliple virtual wifi networks (with different SSIDs). I set one up to use WPA for the main connection, and a WEP connection for the NDS).
