Wireless Card Can't connect to WPA Encrypted network
Posted on 2008-10-17
Have several people with older laptops trying to use my WPA Encrypted Wireless network (Linsys Wireless G). Their laptops don't seem to connect to WPA networks, only un-secured or WEP network. I don't want to change my network to WEP or Unsecured for the sake of a smaller group of users. Other than asking them to purchase a new network card or a new PC, I can't come up with a solution.
I've heard that there are workarounds. I know one of the users has a 3 year old Sony Viao and 4 of them have dell latitudes c510 and c610. Drivers for both systems on the manufacture website are about 5 years old and I don't think install that version driver will help. All systems have Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2. I've contacted both Dell and Sony and haven't gotten much from them, outside of using some Network WCC Manager program that I can't find. Do you guys have a better solution?
