Someone from Verizon (FIOS) told one of my clients that if they changed their WPA passphrase from what they had set it to, they would lose their wireless speed, or the speed of the wireless connection would be lowered.
They gave them a passcode of 16 characters containing letters & numbers that obvious means nothing & they have to keep it written down to give to others that would like to use it while visiting. This is a home not an office.
My question is what this Verizon rep told them true (I can find nothing thru Google about it), & is it just the fact that they need to use a 16 character or larger passcode?
I know it is "recommended" that you use a 12-16 character passphrase, but is your wireless speed affected by the length of it??
