    I am having trouble installing a Belkin Pre-N wireless card.

    Their telephone support is TOTALLY useless, and they are permanently engaged
    now.

    I have installed the wireless router ok. I have selected WPA security on the
    router. When I come to set up the card on the remote machine, the only
    security option I am being offered is WEP, even though the router is set up
    under WPA. Needless to say, there is no throughput of data. The remote
    machine is running a fairly early version of Win XP Home - I was planning to
    upgrade to SP2 once this machine is online. Does WPA require a later version
    of Windows? Is there any other reason why this may be happening?

    Thanks

    Geoff

    I really cannot thank you enough for this very helpful link. Worked
    perfectly!

    No mention this as even a possibility in the Belkin manual, of course.
    Hmmmmm

    a) thanks for snipping... hate a one-liner response made a bit worse
    when there's a URL with no explanation of what it links to...

    b) what is at the end of that URL ? Something extraordinary about
    the Belkin unit, I guess, but quoting it (or a precis of it) in
    a posting would mean others looking for a similar solution may
    find the description using Google, while the URL might no longer
    work in a couple of years...

    What i did not know is that Win XP shipped without WPA support. This PC was
    not connected to internet, so did not have any service patches applied. The
    above is patch for installing wpa support.

    OK - job done :)
