I installed a laptop with windows XP for a friend, very old skool. There is one problem: it cant connect with my network. If i see the list of networks available, i see 2 types:

Secured wireless network Secured wireless network (WPA)

Is it possible that the driver can only connect with the WPA key? My own network is WPA PSK2

Try installing Update for Windows XP (KB893357) if it's not already installed.

This update to Windows XP provides support for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), which is the latest standards-based wireless security solution derived from the IEEE 802.11i standard.

The solution: the driver that i downloaded from the manufacturer was out of date. I went to the website of the WLAN Adapter and run a update from their website
