    Windows XP Prof SP3 and Vista

    I had an wireless connection without any security between the above
    computers. When I set the router and the Win XP computer to WPA-PSK
    security. Vista computer does not have WPA-PSK has the following
    WPA-Personal. I would like to know if they are compatiple with each other.
    Do I need any update to my XP or Vista

    WPA-PSK and WPA-Personal are the same thing.

    If you have XP sp3, you're all set.

    If possible, use WPA2 rather than WPA. If you use WPA and are offered
    the choice between TKIP and AES, choose AES if all of your equipment
    (router and both computers) support that option.
