    Hi, I'm trying to connect to a network which uses WPA-PSK but cannot as my
    computer does not seem to allow entry of WPA-PSK keys.
    I'm using Windows XP SP2 which is fully updated through Windows Update both
    Express and Custom.
    When clicking Add in the "Wireless Network Connection Properties" dialog to
    add a network the Network Authentication dropdown only shows "Open" and
    "Shared" not "WPA-PSK" as shown in this article

    Any ideas how to enable this option so i can connect to the Wireless network?

  2. What kind of wireless adapter are you using? Not all (and especially those
    that are more than a few years old) support WPA. Try updating the driver
    for the adapter if the adapter can support WPA.
