I just bought a new netgear wndr3700 router and am trying to get my g.f's laptop up on it. I can set the wireless pc card to full wpa2 protection but it can't seem to connect. It sees the router but the connection fails. I tried setting it up with windows network setup but was told I had to the netgear setup to get full encryption. So I set it up but it just won't connect.

I was wondering if there is an encryption limit with xp?

I don't think the limits are with XP, but rather some of the old network adapters (or possibly the drivers).

Thanks - it would have taken me days of bumbling to get to drivers, I am kinda slow sometimes

Hah! thanks, now I have to figure out how to get drivers to the laptop. Well, I have this laptop, I should be able to get the drivers from here to there with a thumb drive. Will let you know if that was it (and close the thread)
