Can I use WPA with a Windows2000 PC?

Windows 2000 does not support WPA.Â However some wireless cards
(Netgear 511T) actually ship with support for WPA in Win2k.Â There also
appear to be several 3rd party addons...|

Two realitively inexpensive WPA-PSK clients that come to mind for Win2k is
the Odyssey client from Funk Software (~$50) and Aegis client from Meetinghouse (~$40)
You can also download the free supplicant for T-Mobile Hotspots. It also supports non-T-Mobile connections and provides for WPA and 802.1X.

Windows 2000/XP: Â»client.hotspot.t-mobile.com/TMClÂ·Â·Â·0-xp.exe
Note that Draytek Australia has not tried these utilities and cannot provide support for them; they are provided as a convenience for customers only.
