WEP, WPA and WPA2 are security mechanisms (encryption) for wireless connections. WEP is the oldest, followed by WPA then WPA2.
What wireless card is installed in the machine? even though the M3720 may run Win7, the wireless card itself since it's an accessory may have some issues.
Ok, I think this is what we tried with the old tower (well a friend did).
I will see if I can find some details of the wireless card.
Thank you for your help.
