    I'm having a problem using WPA-2 on my home network, but WPA works fine. Having been convinced by many experts in this forum of the need for encryption, am I less secure using WPA?

    IMO, if the encryption key is convoluted enough, I'd think you'd be pretty safe. I use the 63 random printable ASCII characters password from here https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm (Note that each time you load the page, a new password is generated.)

    (I copy it to a text file that I can use to enter the key wherever I need it... PC, router, wherever.)
