WPA2 Personal WLAN Connection
Posted on 2006-07-13
I recently got a Linksys Wireless-G Access Point (model# WAP54G) and connected it to my wired network via a Netgear switch (model# FS526T). I tested it with no security enabled and was able to connect to the network via my Fujitsu notebook (model# Lifebook S series S6120D). Internet worked fine and I was able to connect to my shares.
Now, using the Linksys setup program I enable the WPA2 personal security level, gave it a passphrase and tried to connect.... nothing!
Error message: "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network."
Thinking my WLAN card wasn't up-to-date I downgraded the security to WEP and connected fine. Okay... so upgrade the WLAN card so it's compatible to the WPA2 standard right? I haven't had much luck with that theory yet... so am I stuck with the WEP seturity until I upgrade my laptop or is there some way to upgrade the firmware/driver of the WLAN card to be compatible with the WPA2 standard?
The wireless card in question is the Broadcom BCM4306 Wireless LAN Adapter; driver date: 6/13/2003; driver version: 220.127.116.11
I checked Fujitsu's support site and verified the driver is up-to-date and I've run all available Windows Updates. At this point I'm unsure what to do.
