    I am in the process of setting up a wireless internet connection thro a Belkin 54G router (model F5D7230UK4) and would like to use the WPA security settings. I am connecting to a Dell laptop which is wi-fi enabled running on XP- no problems there. But I also want to connect wirelessly to a desktop PC running on Windows Me. Is it correct that this O/S does not support WPA security settings. If that's the case, what would be my best option for making the wireless network secure?

    Thanks in advance.

    Personally, I'd buy a wireless access point or bridge, and use that to connect to the ME computer. The WAP will have WPA capability, and will keep the network secure. IMO, that's the best option.
