Wireless PCI adapter for Windows 2000

    I am looking for a wireless PCI adapter that supports WPA on Windows
    2000. Since Windows 2000 does not have the Wireless Zero
    Configuration service like XP does, then the wireless PCI adapter
    needs to come with its own utility that lets you use WPA.

    I also would like the adapter's software to run as a Windows service
    (as opposed to running only when a user logs in) - that way the system
    can respond to pings or share requests if no one is logged in. The
    software should also allow limited user accounts to use the wireless
    connection.

    Any recommendations?

  2. Hi
    I doubt that you would find one.
    Widows Zero Configuration has nothing to do with WPA. The encryption per-se
    has to be supported by the OS and Win2000 does not support WPA.
