I am new to this NG, so apologies if this post is misplaced ...etc.
Yesterday I upgraded my laptop from W2K to XP (sp2). I now have the problem that my WLAN is broken. I have a Netgear MA401 NIC, and a Netgear ME102 WAP that worked fine for three and half years under W2K.
Doing a search on this NG amongst others it appears that the problem relates to a MS quickfix Q815485 that is part of the sp2 release, and relates to WPA encryption.
I have read one thread that allude to the MA401 working with XP sp2, however no details were provided.
For the record here are the version numbers that I'm running;
ME102: Firmware: 1.4h.3 USB Config app: 126.96.36.199
MA401: Network Driver: 2.01.01 Config Utility: 1.07.37 NIC Firmware: 1.03.04.00
Having rung Netgear tech support they suggest using the builtin XP wireless connectivity stuff, however neither the WAP nor NIC appear to have support for WPA, and the OS does not appear to be able to recognise the WAP as an available network.
Hoping that someone out there has had some success with this. I would appreciate it greatly if you could contact me at; atyson_AT_optus_DOT_net ( where '_AT_' = '@' and '_DOT_' = '.' )
Thanks and regards, Andrew
