Mitz, first of all, I would like to thank you very much for your web-site. It is very nice and full of information, using the proper language for us to understand. It is exactly what I need.I have a problem with my home wireless network. I installed it but it is not protected as I would like to. I have WEP for now.I have 3 computers to connect. Two laptops (wireless) and one desktop which is not wireless.The wireless router has the options WEP, WPA, WPA2. I would choose WPA or WPA2 but the desktop will not get connected. I donâ€™t have any problem with the laptops. I had to go back and choose WEP for that is the only way all three will get connected to internet.How can I find out if my desktop uses or is set up for only WEP?My question is, if there is any way to upgrade my desktop to WPA or even better, to WPA2 and how do I do that?Please if you can help me with with step by step explanation I would really appreciate it. I just donâ€™t want to have any exposure to hackers and I am not a pro in computers. I really need your help.
I have had this with a few set ups I have done. In the past, the computer that wouldn't connect was a little older and the wireless card did not support WPA. The only work around I have found is to use the WEP/WPA mode on your router if it supports it. That way, devices that can support WPA will use that protocol and those that can't will use WEP. Maybe not an ideal solution but it will make your network a little more secure.
I don't have information regarding this context as it is not my cup of tea. Therefore I want to say that it will be better to make your system to be checked by any expert so that he can solve your problem without any delay
