WPA option not showing up
I am using an IBM Thinkpad T40. It does not have a wireless card so I am using a U.S Robotics Wireless Turbo PC Card USR5410. I downloaded the most recent driver, and installed it. However there was only one problem, when I try connecting to a network, the WPA Encryption option is not in the drop down menu. However I am sure that the card is WPA compatible because the driver said enables WPA, and when I had win xp, the wpa option worked. However in order to get it to work with xp, I had to download Boingo Wireless Utility (unfortunately that is not compatible with 7).
I have read 1000 different topic threads saying that WPA does not show up because the card is not compatible but I am pretty sure that this card supports WPA.

USR5410 & Vista/7
Hi the problem you mentioned, is not a hardwre problem
i think you used like me texas instrument driver. this driver is not compatible with wpa. i had the same problem with vista and now with 7.
there was a year ago another driver that is compatible. if you see in hardware zone the name of your wireless card is the original name, likeme?
this is the wrong driver. the correct driver for vista/7 is a driver you can see hardware name simply like Generic Wireless card adapter .
now i post you the link for the instruction but unfortunatly the link for download the driver dowsn't work and me also don't know how to find this driver . i delete it 2 years ago accidentaly
