Hi there,

today I installed longhorn build 4074 on my laptop. Everything is working so far and all drivers are working too. But I have some problems with connecting to my wlan. It is encrypted with wpa and wpa2. But Longhorn is based on XP SP0/SP1 which didn't support those encryptions. Does anyone have a crack to tell longhorn how to deal with wpa/wpa2? Would be really great!

Here's a screenshot of the network wizard...

Thanks in advance!

There is third party software available. BTW, you must use the imageuploader for ALL images!

Thankyou Hounsell, I didn't mean to be a ''tell tale'', I was was just trying to help you enforce the rules. But is there actually 3rd party software available to connect to WPA encrypted wireless networks? I am sure, since you put your Protoplex thingy on your laptop, you might also have a wireless Internet connection and had problems connecting since it most likely uses WPA encryption.

Sorry I didn't get you :? In your first post of this thread you mentioned that there's 3rd party software. So what did you ask me now? (my English seems not to be very good ... sorry about that)

I was just guessing when I said there was third party software available to enable WPA support in pre-Windows XP SP2 systems. If there is what do you think would be the best and free?

There must of been third party tools available, because WPA wireless connection encryption was introduced before SP2 for XP was released.

BTW, I also read from somewhere that XP came without built-in support for Bluetooth, and there was an update available that enabled such support, but needed XP SP1 installed, and the update later came as part of SP2.

I believe it's that update that also provides WPA2 support.
I had WPA1 support on 4074 anyway, but I didn't use that wizard...

I thought WPA encryption was introduced in 2003 but maybe the Longhorn builds after the month in 2003 that WPA was introduced, ie: in 2004, Build 4074, probably did come with built in WPA support, (although maybe very buggy). My wireless network uses WPA Personal TKIP encryption. Would Longhorn Build 4074 natively support connecting to wireless networks with that kind of encryption?

Wireless security is usually handled by the wifi device. Install its software that comes with it and try

Yes, the drivers that come with my PCI wlan card actually have its own software, letting you bypass Windows' WLAN tools. (but not in vista though, you still have to use the Network and Sharing Center)

I couldn't ever get my 4074 install to connect to my wireless network. I tried a netgear atheros wifi card and also an intel card, neither would work with WPA or WEP turned on. I eventually gave up on having 4074 installed on my laptop. If I remember correctly, I was using the latest XP driver versions, but couldn't get it going.

wpa_supplicant is a WPA Supplicant for Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, and Windows with support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i / RSN).
[...]
Supported wireless cards/drivers
[..]
* Windows NDIS drivers (Windows; at least XP and 2000, others not tested)
[...]
README-Windows.txt has some more information about the Windows port of wpa_supplicant.
[..]
o wpa_supplicant-windows-bin-0.5.10.zip (binaries for Windows)


It think it is what you wanted.

This doesn't work on longhorn 3718, doesn't have the required dll's etc (and downloading them doesn't help, they don't want to register etc etc).
Any way to get wpa working on 3718, intel uttillity can't install and broadcom utillity won't run (Tried in compability mode and windows install 3.1 is installed).
I have an Intel 4945AGN, any way to get it working?


(sorry for the bump)
