WPA security for your old wireless laptop.

WPA security for your old wireless laptop.

December 8th, 2008

This is just a really quick note that I hope helps someone…
I had an issue connecting an old laptop to a WPA secured wireless network. As it turned out the driver for the wireless card did not support WPA security. It was an Orinoco card and the driver was written by Agere systems.

It took a little while to dig up the updated drivers with WPA support… So here’s another link just in case someone needs them.

ftp://ftp.3logic.net/pub/wireless/Agere/

Download the windows drivers zip file and extract it to a temporary directory, then go to device manager and find your wireless card. Update the driver and point the update utility and the temp directory you created from the extracted zip file. Bingo…

You should be able to connect to your WPA secured wireless connection. Have Fun!

Your Geek,
Ryan
