Wireless Adapter 3300 and WPA2-PSK

This question is not answered

Trying to set up Dell 2330dn to run wireless in our office using the Dell Wireless Adapter 3300 and I'm running into a problem getting it to connect to the network.  IThe installation program offers three options for security; no security, WEP and WPA-PSK.  We utilize WPA2-PSK on all our workstations and tablets, so changing the security settings on the router is not our first choice.  Is there a new driver or work around for the 3300 that allows WPA2-PSK?

    Sorry but the only way I can get the 3300 to work is with No security, WEP Or WPA-PSK(TKIP) Security (Personal)

     

    I also had issue with the Belkin Wireless N router not being able to communicate with the 3300.

    What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

  • Thanks Rick. We are running Cisco AP and need the highest encryption possible. So I assume there is no driver upgrade at this point.Thank you for your assistance with this.

    There is a firmware update for the 3300 but I don't think it will still allow it. Actually I never tried WPA2 security on my system because of the USB wireless adapters we have to use from time to time. If you want to try the firmware, you can find the information at...

    If the firmware won't allow WPA2 security, then the 3300 will have the latest firmware.

  • Thank you very much Rick!  I'm going to try this update and see if it's different from the one I'm already using.  Appreciate your assistance!!
