Z61t, Access Connections, WPA2

How can I make the Access Connections on my Z61t work with WPA2?

My Z61t has AC v5.02, which is uptodate per Active Update. It works well except in one location. My girlfriend is using WPA2 to secure her home wireless, and AC refuses to connect to that: it always fails to authenticate. I can make the Z61t connect via WPA2 using Windows to configure the wireless, so the problem seems to be with AC. Unfortunately using Windows is not much of a solution, since that seems to upset AC: when using Windows wireless, the Z61t's wireless radio periodically powers off, requiring me to use Fn+F5 to revive it (and then to reconnect), which is not a problem I encounter when using AC.

Re: Z61t, Access Connections, WPA2

The fix was to change data encryption from AES to TKIP: from Access Connections, edit the profile>Wireless Settings>Data encryption=TKIP.
