Hi. I've recently set up a wireless network in my house and I am able to get online without any problems (amazingly enough). My housemates, on the other hand, have older systems and are having issues connecting. We believe this to be that they are not compatible with WPA-PSK encryption, to which our router is set. I changed this to WEP, and then for some reason the internet kept cutting out and not working on MY computer. It was slow and spotty. However, the housemates were at least able to connect. But, obviously this solution is unacceptable. ;) I need something where all the computers can be online without issue.
Now, it would be nice if they would all to upgrade their systems. ;) However, I'll try this first. Does anyone know why WEP would be causing bandwidth and/or connection issues for my computer? Or, preferably, how to get an older computer to be compatible with WPA-PSK? They are running Windows 2K and and Win XP, with internal wireless hardware - not sure of the make at the moment. Perhaps a new driver would help? I'm stuck.
Any help appreciated. Thanks!
