I have a home network that uses US Robotics MAXg components to link computers running Windows XP. The encryption is set to "WPA2 and WPA" and all works fine. I also have an older computer running Windows 98SE. It would be useful to connect this to the network from time to time, preferably using a USB adapter. However, I know that some adapters require Windows XP to function with WPA. Is this a fundamental requirement (i.e. do all adapters require XP)?
Is it possible to connect the 98SE computer and continue to use WPA? If so, what do I need to buy?
I can accept a reduction in network speed whilst the 98SE computer is connected. However, it would be unworkable to change the encryption method each time!
