Hi I just got this today. I tried installing it to my brothers 2003/2003 or 2004 old Toshiba 5200-701 laptop which is running the factory install image of Windows XP Home edition. XP home wouldn't recognise the setup on the cd & said OS not supported. So I downloaded the latest version setup from the cisco home support site & the Windows XP driver Ver 126.96.36.199. Don't know which version is on the cd. The new downloaded Setup worked, it installed & found the device.
So seeing as it had the old Win XP Home, I did an upgrade to the Windows XP Professional SP2. I can connect to my router now & using the NEW SETUP from cisco for WINXP the best encryption I can use is not good enough! The best I can use is WPA-TKIP. But I want to use WPA2-AES or WPA2-TKIP. But it has to be WPA2! On the Driver version page it shows 188.8.131.52 09/03/2009 & under the Digital signer it shows Microsoft Windows Hardware compatibility Publisher. Please how can I then make it use WPA2 please?
Any advice, suggestions, tips, answers are greatly appreciated very much thankyou.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Ok thanks golum. I thought i mgiht have to upgrade to SP3 for support for some extra networking & security features IPV6 protocols & some other networking changes so WInXp as a client would be compatible with a Win serv OS network. I wasn't sure but you have assured me now. Thanks Golum
