    Default Will the Nexus 7 2nd gen 2013 work on my router?

    Hi

    I wanted to know if the nexus 7 2nd gen 2013 will work on my router? My router is a NetGear Wireless-N 300 Router w/DSL Modem and it has WPA2 security.
    The reason that i'm asking is because im close to purchasing it. And i just found out that my ds lite can't connect to router too, because it will only connect if router is WEP security.
    I'm a beginner with all this tech stuff.
    I just wanna know if nexus 7 2nd gen will work on my router.

    Does anyone have a nexus 7 2nd gen and has got the same router as me?? And does it work ok/good?
    Any help appreciated
    Thanks.

    It should work. I have the same router and I haven't had any issues with any of my devices. Don't have a Nexus 7 but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Most passwords are WPA2 and I haven't seen anyone have issues with it

    I have a Nexus 7 that works fine on WPA2 security. I have a Netgear router, too.

    Go for it. I have that same router (exact model is DGN2200) and both of my Nexus 7 2013's work great with it.

    I remember the DS lite not being able to connect to WPA2. It's just the technology in that is old, every new device can connect to WPA2 fine, as I found out yesterday when my Nexus connected to my new WPA2 router
