    hello everybody, i'm a newbie in wireless setting.
    I'm trying to connect a WMP54G to an WAP54G in Wi-Fi Protected-access. My computer is in W98 SE (very old one)
    I'm wondering if Windows 98 can work with WPA security ??
    I looked to microsoft but they don't support anymore W98
    :cry: .

    Thanks for reply :)

    Check to see if Funk Odyssey will work on Win98. There should be a driver on the CD-ROM you got with the WMP54G.
