    When I go to view my wireless network, it shows it as WPA enabled, not WPA2 like it really is. It also doesn't work when I attempt to connect. I've had similar problems with computers where a windows update fixed it. I tried one windows hotfix but it wouldn't let me install it cuz I have SP3. Why isn't there support for WPA2? Possibly the Wireless adapter drivers or something? Any ideas? Any downloads/updates that might help? Or is it the card itself?
    This it the wireless card: http://trendnet.com/asp/download_manager/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=690

    I'm thinking they just didn't udpate it to support WPA2? Help? thanks in advance

    It's the firmware on the wireless card that controls what kind of security it can use, not Windows.
