      A Must on how to Secure your V1 Router following recent securirty flaw..

      Hey,

      I found this its able to randomly create a random WLAN key required to access the router. It is able to make a 63 character key. e.g

      7c5a63292d53576d66207878382e646e6e30333c242f347d75 6b4d557c306a7c372b7e694a72466c344a5a30544c276e5179 45502e46726c775b6b6c6c2236

      or a smaller one 6578483223 see.

      Just thought this would come in handy following the recent security flaw in the V1 routers.

      A very useful site. Replacing your default WPA with an 8 letter word that can be found in a dictionary is barely more secure than the default password, so a good long random character password is best.

      For a WPA password, you don't need to restrict yourself to hexadecimal digits (i.e., 0-9 and a-f). The link you gave also gives an ASCII string of up to 63 characters, using letters, digits and punctuation characters. Using that would represent the maximum security on WPA.
