      XPSP1 doesn't support WPA/PSK.

      Also not all devices support WPA, for example my son wanted to go online on his NDS Lite to trade pokemon, however for some stupid reason Nintendo saw fit to enable WEP and not WPA on the console, whereas the Wii handled WPA fine

      Awesome stuff! This has worked a treat

      Not my missus can get on the net with her laptop that only supports WEP to do her uni work.

      Thanks!

      This may help with the WEP issue I have. Everytime my PC booted up the router would loose connection and have to re-sync.

      I'm using the Netgear Wireless stick that SKY provide.
