In any event I am finding that after rebooting the WPA2 code is no longer there and it has reverted back to Open WEP.
I also tried the option: Network And Internet -- Add a wireless device to the network but again nothing is found I downloaded this: and nothing seems to have changed.
(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.
Your computer only allows one network connection at a time.
Is there any solution available short or replacing the NIC or network card with an updated one? Note: If your router has multiple ethernet ports, DO NOT use the WAN port to connect a computer.WAN ports are usually colored blue and/or labeled with an icon that looks like a little monitor; they are intended to be used to connect devices that provide internet, such as Cable, DSL, or Satellite modems.Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and cannot get it to connect to my school Wi Fi network. I can access it via a LAN wired connection but the computer does not have WPA2 capabilities. I am trying to save some money seeing as I'm a college student.
