I'm on a rather old laptop on Windows XP (Gateway MD-200STM) that has built in wireless that shows up in the device manager as "Orinoco Wireless LAN PC Card 3.3v; the card works okay, but when we updated the wireless router to use WPA, it no longer connects. I did some research, and found that this is because it is old enough that it only supports WEP, but found that it is apparently possible to do a driver and/or firmware update to support WPA. How would I go about this, where would I get these files?
