So I have been hearing that using WPS Pin is not secure at all and that there are available downloads that can brute force attack the pin until it uncovers it depending on what encryption you use. I have done a little digging but I cant conclusively discover what is the most secure encryption to use. I was wondering if people could point out what would be the safest among the available options my router supports they are as following:
- WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
- WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)
- WPA2-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key)
- Mixed WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK
I have set it to the WPA2-PSK (Third option) with a very long complex key. However I have read and maybe I have misunderstood but it seems that the length and complexity did not matter when it was brute force cracking the WPS and that ultimately it would uncover the pin. I have turned off the WPS pin feature in my router but I am still a bit fazed by what method of encryption is the best to use. Ideally I would like to turn the WiFi off but in this building its almost infeasible.
Thanks in advance for any help!
