I have a little wireless network in my apartment. It has been working fine until I changed my network security type (from WEP to WPA/WPA2). My HP notebook and HP iPAQ are able to connect with no problems. However, My Dell Dimension XPS B733 is not able to connect to the wireless network. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

ISP: EarthLink (through Time Warner Cable)
Internet Speed: 1.5 Mbps
Wireless Router: Belkin (54g) (Speed: 54 Mbps)

Computer: Dell Dimension XPS B733
Processor: Intel Pentium III (running at 733 MHz)
RAM: 512 MB (recent upgrade from 128 MB)
USB: 1.0
Wireless Adapter: Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter (Speed: 54 Mbps)

Older hardware may not support WPA or WPA2. In some cases new drivers can add that support, so make sure you are using the latest drivers. If the adapter is the original, then visit the Dell site and enter the Service Tag number to find the latest drivers from Dell. In many cases you can find even later drivers from the adapter mfr. Let me know what adapter you have, what modes it supports, where you get the latest drivers, and if they help. Scott.

I have a Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter, I simple driver update solved my issue (from 1.0 to 1.3). I found it here:
