Need updated driver that supports WPA

I am trying to connect to a wireless network using WPA. It seems as though my driver is old and does not support WPA. I am currently using the driver version 7.43.0.9. In doing some research, it seems as though I need to download the newer version 7.82.0.550 (22/9/2003). I am continually being directed to www.agere.com, which has now merged with www.lsi.com. I am having a hard time navigating to find what I am looking for on LSI.com. Can you help me find this newer driver so I can connect wirelessly?

    I'm not sure what the model number is. You can find the specs of the computer at this location... http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/...@@@@0725618793.1199232844@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccfaddmlmedhdlcgfkceghdgngdgmm.0

    Once again, thanks for your help. The driver that your provided for me didn't seem to fix the problem. Other sites have stated that the driver I need is 7.82.0.550 (2/9/2003), I just can't find it!

  • YukonCA Jan 03, 2008

    Thanks for all your help, I will try down that path.

    I found the 7.82.0.550 driver at driver guide. Had to pay $6.95 for a 2 day membership to download it. But it does support WPA for my Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI card.

I know this is super old thread, but I just spent a while searching for this driver and eventually found it here:http://driver-backup.com/driver_detail/?driver_id=72539

Hope this saves someone some time.

I found the driver 7.82.0.550 at driver guide and paid $6.95 for a 2 day membership to download it. It supports WPA on my Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI card. I found this driver somewhere else couple years ago but reloaded XP recently and had to find it again. Had to pay for it this time, but it works.

The link posted by LSUTripleC does not seem to work any more. But the driver is on driver guide, and it worked for me (even though I'd normally much prefer to download from original sites, I was getting desperate...), and it got my ancient Toshiba onto a WPA network! And you can get it for free from driver guide if you choose the 'show me adverts' option.

Maybe u already fixed it by now, but i had the same problem and found a solution. I went to: http://extsearch.lsi.com/socialsearch/query?cc=www&cn=lsilogic&q=version+7.82.0.550

I unzipped the file into a folder. Then I went to the device manager and opened the wireless card. Clicked update driver and browsed to the folder i created with the unzipped files. Then installed what it found and viola.....Good luck

this usually means that your wireless network adapter is not compatible with WPA security. try updating your wireless driver and if that does not work, your option would be to purchase a wireless USB adapter that supports WPA. else, check with the network admin at your school for other options. hope this helps

I have a new laptop computer but it wont let me go to internet explorer and connect to my wireless router


1. First try and power off your modem, router and desktop/laptop. Then power on the modem, then the router, and then finally the desktop/laptop. Please do this in that order, allowing 60 seconds in between each device to enable the device to be fully booted and able to accept connections.


2. Update the drivers for your wireless network adapter via Windows Update, or by using the website for either the company you bought your PC/Laptop from or the manufacturer of your networking device.


3. Ensure that your router is set to broadcast it's network name (SSID), ensure that you are connecting to the correct wireless network (SSID) and that you are using the correct WEP/WPA passkey on both devices.

a. Please use "Windows Connect Now" or "Wi-Fi Protected Setup" if available on your wireless router to ensure that the connection is setup correctly.


4. If you are trying to use WPA or WPA2, please ensure that both your network adapter and wireless router support this protocol. If you are having issues detecting your wireless network when using WPA or WPA2, try configuring your router to use WEP instead and see if you can connect.

a. Please note that the change between WEP/WPA/WPA2 will need to be made on both your computer and wireless router.

b. If you are only able to connect using WEP, then your networking hardware may need a firmware upgrade. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, please call your hardware/router manufacturer for help in doing this.


5. If you are having a problem with your wireless connection after resuming from hibernate or sleep, or are having intermittent connectivity issues, try to adjust your Power Management profile to change your Wireless Adapter Settings to Maximum Performance.

a. To do this click "Change Plan Settings" next to your Power Profile, and choose "Wireless Adapter Settings" and set it to Maximum Performance. You should do this with all of your power profiles. Additional guidance is available here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/power-management


6. Call the support line for your router manufacturer. It is likely that neither Windows nor the router are having problems, it is simply an issue of getting the configuration settings on both set up to work correctly together. The router manufacturer will be the best resource to know how to configure their device. Most of the contact numbers are listed here: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us

Change my settings from wep to wpa I have a belkin 54g


when you change the wireless security on the router , it is recommended tht you will change the wireless network name also ( SSID ). Because when you try to connect to the wireless network on the computer, your computer will try to connect to the same old network name with the old wireless security settings. To avoid this you can change the wireless network name. WPA is supported by windows XP SP2 and above operating system.
If the operating system on your computer WINDOWS XP SP1 and if you are trying to connect using the windows utility then you would not be able to connect to the network .

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...


I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

FUJITSU LIFEBOOK S6010 - INTERSIL PRISM PCI WIFI CARD - WPA LAN


Seems like you have a pretty old laptop. I'm guessing its got a wireless B card installed internally. And wireless B supports WEP most of the time. And if you're lucky the manufacturer of that wireless card may have an update to patch your card so that it will see WAP. Otherwise you can replace that internal card or get a usb / PCMCIA wireless card that supports at least wireless G standard.

Emachine notebook doesn't recognize my wireless network.


Try running the Microsoft updates or getting updated drivers for your wireless NIC. It's even possible that the wireless card in the laptop doesn't support WPA security. Unlikely seeing as how the board is fairly new, but possible. You might also want to try getting a PCMCIA wireless card and popping that in.

Wont connect to belkin 54g with wpa security applied


Please try using Wireless 'G' mode only in the router. Also, try using 'TKIP' and not TKIP+AES for encryption.

Please rate this solution, if it works for you.

How to change (or update) wap to wpa encryption on ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter


With this Asus wireless B adapter even the new driver dont support WPA wireless security , because right now sicne WPA is a much newer and higher type of wireless encryption only some wireless B adapter supports that and sorry to say this wireless adapter that you have don't support it even with the latest driver so it will be better to get a new wireless G adapter that supports WPA 100% , you can get the wireless adapter from Asus or from other wireless device manufacturer like Linksys, Netgear. Dlink and Belkin....

Security connectivity issues


is the PC connection you're able to maintain once upgraded to WPA a PC that is physically connected to the router? if so, that would make sense because WPA (and WEP for that matter) are only wireless security protocols and have no protections for hard-wired connections.

In order to convert your system to WPA security, you must first make sure all of your hardware is WPA compatible (that isWPA Drivers are available for it).

For your PC wireless connection, if you're running Windows XP you can go to the microsoft website and download the WPA client. It is available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 815485. install the update and reboot. you will then be able to enable WPA security on your client.

Then you'll possibly need to update the drivers for your hardware for WPA support (router, wireless NIC, etc) if they did not already come enabled.

next you get to configure the router for WPA. you'll want to make sure you're set to WPA with preshared keys (no authentication server required), use TKIP as the algorhythm, and leave group key renewal at it's default value. and of course Select a key that is not likely to be guessed. write the key down as you'll need to configure your NIC using it.

to configure your NIC, once you're in the configuration menu select WPA-PSK for your authentication, TKIP for the encryption mode, in data encryption set it to TKIP, and in the network key put the key you selected earlier.

At this point you should be able to access your wireless router (or other access point). These instructions were kind of generic since i do not have the specific router you're using available to me, but the settings i discussed should be pretty universal when it comes to WPA security.
