0 down vote favorite Can 8.1 only be connected by using an 8 digit pin? I can't find any other way to do this. I have heard that 8.1 has eliminated WPA, so maybe the pin automatically does WPA2? TOTALLY unclear!!! But it seems that WPA2 should have a longer entry than 8 digits!?! I REALLY want to use WPA2, but this option cannot be specifically found. It just asks for the PIN. Please give very clear step by step instructions, as NOTHING about this is clear or obvious. One of the routers used with this computer has 2 different numbers on it for various levels of security : 1) WPS PIN (used on this 8.1 computer) 2) WPA2 Key (can't find a way to use this) Does 8.1 use the PIN for WPA2, which doesn't seem to match normal processes? AND other devices with a secure connection require the WPA2?!?
