New Prism 2.5/3 Win9X/2K/XP drivers with WPA support

Postby spec » Tue Jun 22, 2004 10:01 am

Hi,
I'm using various Prism-2.5 cards (Netgear MA311 PCI, Z-Com
XI-626)

As you (might) know you, for WPA to work on Windows XP you need

1. A network card with a suitable firmware (Prism2.5/3 with
1.7.4) 2. A network card driver compatible with Windows XP
Wireless Zero configuration 3. A network card driver that also
has the WPA supplement built-in

So far I have #1 and #2, but I'm missing #3.

After googling the internet for 4 hours I just
found "only" one WPA driver for a Prism-2.5 (mini-)PCI card for
Win9X/2K/XP

http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/support.do?srch=DOWNLOADS

choose
"Notebook", "P-Series" and "P2120" in the search engine
-----------------------------------------------
Network adapters : Wireless LAN
Intersil PRISM Wireless LAN PCI Card
Version: 04/10/2003, 3.0.4
Release Notes:
This driver adds WPA support to the Intersil Prism 2.5 Wireless
card.


Restrictions:

1)WPA is supported in Windows XP with Hotfix Q815485, KB826942 or
ServicePack 2. Use Windows Update to install these updates.

2)Windows 2000 and Windows ME will need third-party client
software to support WPA.

3)Under all Operating Systems: When the Access Point's SSID is
set to "Not Broadcast", the Wireless card's "802.11D" property
must be changed from "default" to "none". This setting is found
on the "Advanced" tab of the Intersil PRISM Wireless LAN PCI Card
Properties, accessible from Windows Device Manager.

How do you update a driver without a .INF file?

How I did it: WPA on Linksys WPC11 version 1 (v1/Prism2)

What I have is Linksys WPC11 version 1 (v1/Prism2)
Just downloaded the latest drivers from Linksys (dated 20020531 http://www.linksys.com/download/driver.asp?dlid=49&osid=6 WDT11&WPC11 combined driver) extracted it.
Found the WPC11-WDT11\Driver\ndis51\ folder and overwrite the [prismnds.sys] file there! :)
(from: http://www.pretaktovanie.sk/download/intersil/prismnds.sys Many Thanks to spec ;) )
Than installed the driver as usual!

Note: Unfortunately WPA/TKIP supported only not WPA2/AES!
But it's fine for me and is much better WEP!

Is that a PD document or is there some non-disclosure stuff attached to it?
