    upgarde WEP to WPA2 on laptop with XP Pro SP2

    I have an old P3 500 Toshiba laptop. It has built in wireless card but only supports WEP. I have just purchased a new router that supports WPA2. I don't really want to lower the security level to WEP.

    Can this be change by a KB patch, Driver Update etc?

    I sem to remember once ready about a XP SP2 pathc released that woul ddo this but not sure?


    Can this be done?

    If its a tosh mini card, you wont be able to get a firmware update and will end up having to by a adapter as they do not support the new wirleess security there is a patch from microsoft to enaable it though if the card supports it

    Are you using the Tosh software?

    I tend to use the windows software only, but stick only stick drivers on.
