    I recently read in an article in Network Computing (Vol. 16, No. 3,
    page 59) that Microsoft has an alpha version of a WPA2 supplicant. I
    suppose this would be integrated into the Wireless Zero Configuration
    component of XP. Does anyone have any roadmap information from
    Microsoft on when this will be generally available, even in a beta
    form? I've searched often on their site and haven't seen any reference
    to it. While I do know that Funk Odyssey Client can be used as a
    supplicant, I prefer to use native support where possible.

    Update for Windows XP (KB893357)
    This update to Windows XP provides support for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
    (WPA2), which is the latest standards-based wireless security solution
    derived from the IEEE 802.11i standard. It also contains Wireless
    Provisioning Services (WPS) Information Element support, which enables
    improvements in wireless network discoverability.
