N96 - Wlan problem with wpa / wpa2 encryption

Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone else is having problems with the N96 working with a router that has either WPA or WPA2 enabled? Is this a known problem? I've had no hassle with my N96 connecting to the wireless router if WEP is on, but it throws a few errors if WPA/WPA2 is on.

My old N95 has no problem connecting to anything, just the N96.

Can someone else verify if they have had a similar experience with Wlan. I'm hoping this is something Nokia will address is future firmware updates.

Paul

My N96 wireless is fine with WPA encryption.

I'm running firmware v12.

Thanks for the input so far. I should have pointed out that i'm on the v11.018 firmware. I'll wait until the nsu picks up the v12 update and try again.

thanks,

Paul

I'm having trouble too. Mine will find the router sometimes and then sometimes won't find it. I've got a BT Homehub, but pretty sure I'm already set up for using WEP.
