Wireless Networking on Windows 2000

September 12, 2009 at 09:28:34
Specs: Windows 2000 SP4
I recently put a Zyair B-300 card in a Windows 2000 machine. It connects to my temporary unsecured network just fine. The trouble is that, where this computer is going is a place that has WEP encryption. I have no idea where I can enter in WEP information for this connection. It is nowhere to be found in the properties of the connection itself, and Zyxel doesnt seem to have a specific utility program for this device. Thanks for any help in advance!

yea, unfortunately most of those settings didn't exist on this computer. turned out i had to go into service and turn on windows configuration. if that was turned off, i could only connect to unsecured networks, but with it on, it adds an authentication tab to my connection properties.
