WPA, or Wi-Fi Protected Access, is a security protocol for wireless networks. WPA is used to protect a network from unwanted computer access. Most home broadband routers have WPA set as a standard network authentication protocol. Sky Broadband uses Netgear DG934G and Netgear DG834GT routers as their standard issue routers. Some computer wireless network cards are not WPA-enabled and so it will be necessary to disable WPA or change the authentication type.
