I really need a wireless client for Windows 2000. I'm using a Linksys 802.11g adapter that's 10 years old and its wireless client on the driver disc is asinine and old. I can't find a newer utility on Linksys' website, and Windows 2000's implementation of a wireless client is far too crude and outdated.

The RTL8191SE driver comes with a wireless client for windows 2000 (however it needs to be run with a wrapper or kernelex, otherwise it will complain about a dll)

Will clients for other cards work, or do they have some mechanism that refuses to run with another vendor's card? The one for my Atheros AR5007EG card on my Eee PC 1000HD supports most modern encryption protocols (like WPA2-PSK) and works just fine with vanilla Windows 2000, though the GUI is a bit meh. If you want to try it, extract this and run ACU.exe from the ACU directory.

Strike the f1 key to continue, f2 to run the setup utility.

Hi.

Yes , but if we use any Wireless on Windows 2000,  we must install Wireless Client soft.
