WiFi with WPA support Windows 2000

Recommended Posts

I got a laptop that came with Windows 2000 and since the WiFi card and connection manager only supported WEP, I bought a wireless PC card. The card is installed and the driver works the only problem is finding a connection manager that is both free and will work with my card and Windows 2000. I've tried maybe 10 different software with little to no success. Do you guys know of any software that will let me connect on a WPA protected network? Thank you.

Maybe if you list EXACTLY the ones that you tried and had failure with, you (actually we) will save time with diiplicates.... :whistle:

Yes/No.

Have you tried this one?:

Or the later McAfee version:

(IF WPA-PSK is OK)

And this one?

Ok then I 've tried :

Winc 2.2, don't support WPA

Lucid Link, don't support my card

BVRP, seems to work but can't connect

Realtek wireless lan utility, don't seem to support WIN 2k

and 2 or 3 other that I have deleted and I don't quite remember the name

oh and my card is a realtek RTL8185 and my computer is a Dell Latitude C610 if it can help.

Most wireless managers work but make explorer intermittently hang for 1-2 minutes... except for BVRP Connection Manager Lite, download the older version (Engine 10.50.0.125), it doesn't hang.
