Information about WPA and Windows 2000

For Windows versions 9x,2000,NT "the card producer is fully responsible for the operation of the card: the relevant company must supply a suitable add-on program, a supplicant, for the key exchange accruing with WPA. Whereas an adapter producer gets the actual driver from the supplier of the WLAN chipset and is only required to make adjustments according to his own needs, the licence for a supplicant is normally provided by a third party. Most manufacturers tend to avoid this expense, so that users of Windows 98, ME or 2000 often face problems […]

Users of older Windows versions will also experience frustration and must try to operate the card with the supplicant of a third-party producer. For WPA-PSK one option is the McAffee Wireless Security Client. Unfortunately, it only works with the fee-based, ‚advanced’ authentication methods necessary for uni-ms. [...] This free supplicant for Windows, Linux and BSD can be used as an alternative. (source: Heise-Netze)
