I am trying to save some money seeing as I'm a college student. Thank you for any help Windows XP Version 5.1 with Service Pack 3..
I recently set up a wireless network for my new Sitecom WL-585 modem router with WPA-2 security and all went according to plan.
I have a Win 7 laptop, Vista laptop, XP laptop, Nokia N95 and Soundbridge all connected.
This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.
For background information, see Wireless LAN Technologies and Microsoft Windows.
This article describes the steps necessary to connect to your Cradlepoint through your computer.
Your computer only allows one network connection at a time.
(It is possible I missed an update, but don't think I did). They are the ones that told me the NIC was too old to support WPA2. You can go here to download the correct driver once you know which one. I have downloaded all the network drivers as well as the software drivers and some other recommended updates.
I guess I'm just hoping there is an update or something that can allow it without having to replace it. I have Windows XP with SP3 (which is supposed to allow WPA2) with a Dell 1397 Wireless Card.
The Network Connections folder and the notification area icons provide information about the state of the authentication.
