Wireless connection with Open or Shared Auth Type

WinXP SP2, 64bit WEP keys connects fine when i select the Auth type "Open" but not on "Shared", and if i changed into "WPA-PSK" not able to connect, only connects on WEP "OPEN" connection.

I get error something no wireless found, out of range

What is difference in Open and Shared? and why its connecting on Open?

Not being able to use one or the other might have somlthing to do with the compatablility of the devices you are using.

Open means that WEP is used (if selected) but anyone can use the network.
Shared means that both the Access Point and the wireless client require having have a matching key before association of the two devices.
There must be a problem between the key in your PC and the key in the Access Point.

What kind of AP and wireless card are you using....
