Question about HP Pavilion Ze4805us Notebook
I cannot find a way to connect to WPA wireless networks. The windows wireless network connections only appears to let me enter WEP keys (which work fine on WEP secured nets), but I need to connect to a WPA network. Anyone know of drivers for the machine?
The ZE4805US contains the Broadcom or the LAN express wifi cards so dont expect a driver - the chip doesnt support the feature.
Hope this helps

I've had a ZE4805US for almost 4 years, and use a linksys wrt54gs wireless router. I use WPA encryption it works just fine for me. Everytime i reload the system with xp from the hp discs WPA is not in the options. The only thing i had to do to get it was do windows update + sp2. Then it's right there in the wireless settings. Hope this helps you out.
