    On my Windows 2000 desktop computer I have a WMP54Gv2 wireless PCI card. My network is running with WPA-PSK but the software I got with the card doesn't support WPA encryption (it only supports WEP). I've looked around for updates for the software/driver but I can't seem to find any (there is only downloads for wmp54gv4 on the linksys site now). Is there any way to get it to work with WPA?

    WMP54G v2.0

    Product Descriptions:

    The Linksys Wireless-G PCI Card installs in most desktops and lets you put your computer almost anywhere in the building, without the cost and hassle of running network cables. Now you don't have to drill holes in your walls and climb through the attic or cellar to get connected to the network. Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, use instant messaging to chat with friends, and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other computers on the network.
    The Wireless-G PCI Card connects you with Wireless-G networks at an incredible 54Mbps! And for added versatility, it can also interoperate with all the 11Mbps Wireless-B (802.11b) products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country. And in either mode, your wireless communications are protected by up to 128-bit encryption and the new industrial-strength WPA (Wi-Fi Protected AccessTM) security, so your data is safe.

    Product Tips:

    Minimum System Requirements:

    200MHz or Faster Processor
    64MB of RAM or Better
    Available PCI Slot
    CD-Rom Drive
    Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 or XP

    Supported Encryption:

    WEP: Up to 128bit encryption.

    WPA: Wi-fi Protected Access
    TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol
    AES: Advanced Encryption Standard

    To use WPA customer must install Boingo Utility on systems with Windows 98SE, ME,
    & 2000. Systems with Windows XP, Hotfix Q815485 must be installed to use WPA.
