WPA-PSK or WEP64

How do I know whether my pc/laptop can support WAP-PSK or WEP? The User Manual for the laptop doesn't mention either although it is wireless enabled.

If you are using PC, then you need to have PCI or USB wireless adapter to connect to wireless network. If you are using laptop, then probably there is built-in wireless adapter support, read the laptop manual to find out more...and usually you will know the supported encryption by using the wireless adapter's application or wireless zero configuration. Take a look on this wireless network setup tutorial to understand more: click here

dawood - thanks. I've read the laptop manual cover to cover - it's not at all helpful but I know that the laptop does have a built-in wireless adaptor - just don't know how to find out what encryption it will support. Will have a read through your 'click here' though, in the hope that gives more info.

Thanks, tullie. I don't actually have the router yet - it's in the post apparently - but I'll check that out.

How recent ago have you bought it? I'd be surprised if any computer purchased within the last few years doesn't support WPA encryption.

gavin-bewley, thank you for your reply. The laptop is about one month old.............
