Presumably this takes some time, so in a quiet neighbourhood like mine I live at the end of a cul de sac I’d probably notice the van sitting outside for that length of time. Probably your best bet and if they don’t have a WPA capable driver, then you have lots of choices for adapters that do. I got the Linksys PAP2 adapter WEP64 is just as effective against all but the most determined hackers, but those people will break through your WPA code as well. I have no idea where you’re getting this “Actiontec” information from. Anyone with XP SP2 will have it by default, however. If WAP were practical for me I’d certainly use it.

Much easier than going through the hassle Xfinity Forum Archive About the archive project. If WAP were practical for me I’d certainly use it. I used to use one in a Thinkpad A31 which had no wireless internal adapter to talk wirelessly to my Linksys router with WPA encryption.

Wireless WEP/WPA????? – Xfinity Help and Support Forums –

How do i change my thinkpad wireless to access my new comcast bb with the linksys router in WPA mode??????? I will talk with IBM. And I don’t much care if anyone reads my email; it would be pretty boring: Just disable the built in wireless adapter in the hardware setup. Also we’re at the conedant of a conxant hill so even the Mormon missionaries don’t make it up here very often I think we’ve had two sets in 30 years.


Post your questions in the Xfinity Community. See the following article for information on breaking WEP in as little as 3 minutes.

I turned it wpq and everything works great, but if I turn it on again as I add more linked items to the router I would like to filter them, or is this unnecessary. I also protect myself by not having lots of valuable stuff so the incentives are low: On XP you shouldn’t be using anything but the built in XP wireless client.

SD in st paul. Content in this area has been identified as outdated or irrelevant. I went through a long process with IBM, they even helped me located some download from Microsoft however everything points back to the adapter vendor Actiontec which doesn’t support this, sold to Intersil then to Conexant. So we have all sorts of natural protections which you don’t.

Do you know where I can get a good voip with wifi phone, looking for good portability Visit Our Help Communities. I see this as a similar situation to securing my house – I lock my doors and switch lights on and off randomly to give the impression someone’s there when there isn’t, but there’s no way I can guarantee that a determined burglar can’t get in when I’m away.


Baric, thanks for the help.

They only want access to your ISP through a high speed connection to do their illegal work which might be pushing cojexant p0rn or spamming or breaking into some business network. I used that same card in my Thinkpad for a long time with WPA encryption.

None of this protects me from my neighbours, but I do know them all, even if not well enough to know if they are criminals. First, you have to have the proper maintanence on your OS this is obvious and secondly, your adapter driver has to support it.

But, given my system in which Linux drivers at least those I’ve found don’t support WPA, specifying MAC addresses allowed to connect to the network stops conexany from connecting, so outsiders can only sniff traffic.

Wireless adapters/Chipset table

Does this mean the ibm adapter was replace by Actiontec??? For all practical purposes, WPA is overkill. Wireless networks protected with WEP are essentially conezant same as unprotected wireless networks. I just heard back from Actiontec, IBM is supposed to have all of the drivers and firmware updates for my adapter, however they don’t have one with WPA.

Was it the right choice?
