    I have a Toshiba laptop that I wish to connect using WPA-PSK.

    I know my wireless access point supports it and I know the built in hardware
    of my laptop also supports it, but when I try to add a preferred network, the
    only available option in the network authentication is WEP.

    I have tried to use the Intel PROSet software, but each time I turn the
    wireless adaptor on I get the blue screen of death!!

    Any idea?

    There are probably 2 selection windows located where the WEP one is. Try
    the other one.

    Are you using WinXP SP2? As far as Intel, make sure an update the software.

    I can only see one selection window, with a drop-down box and only WEB is

    I have updated to the latest driver and software, still it crashes.

    Your help is appreciated.

  4. What adapter and driver version is this?

    If you navigate to the following property sheet and select the combo-box for
    Network Authentication, is WPA or WPA-PSK listed?

    START > RUN > type "NCPA.CPL" without the quotes and press the "Enter" key
    The network connection folder will open
    Right-Click and select properties on your wireless adapter
    Select the Wireless Networks tab at the top
    Click "Add"
    Select the combo-box for Network Authentication
