      Realtek 8185 Wireless PCI Card

      I have a Realtek RTL8185 wireless card on my motherboard. The documentation says the card can use WEP or WPA but I can only get it to work with my Sky router using WEP. I would like to use WPA - any ideas please?

      What OS are you using? If you are using Windows, try using the Windows wireless manager instead of the Realtek one.
