WPA on ORiNOCO Mini PCI Card

Many laptop makers have not updated their drivers to support WPA. By installing the correct drivers manually, many older laptops can get access to the wonders of WPA anyway.

Frequently I have heard people say that WPA is not available to them in XP. I never understood why until I started playing with my old laptop again.

The wireless network device drivers must support WPA for the windows OS to give it as an option.

If you own one of the many laptops with the wireless ORiNOCO chipset, this upgrade will allow you to use WPA.

You are installing unsupported drivers here. Install at your own risk and revert back to your old driver if this doesn’t work well for you.

1. Download the new drivers
2. Uncompress them to a folder on your desktop
3. Goto into the control panel
4. Select System
5. Under the hardware tab click the device manager button
6. Right-click on the ORiNOCO mini PCI Card under the network adapters
7. Select Update Drivers from the context menu
8. Select Install from list or specific location
9. Select Don’t Search. I will select the driver to install.
10. Click Have Disk
11. Navigate to the folder where you uncompressed your drivers
13. Click Open and ignore warnings
14. When the drivers are completed. Reboot.
