    I put a Cisco AIR-PCI 1352 Card in my PC in order to wirelessly join my network (20" iMac, G4 Mac Mini, Airport Extreme w/WPA2 encryption, Airport Express). I see the network, and when I put the network key in as I would on the Mac, I get an error message stating that the network key must be in 40 bits or 104 bits, which can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. My suspicion is that the card doesn't handle WPA2 encryption. Has anyone ever encountered this issue? :confused:

    It looks like the Cisco card only uses WEP as you've rightly deduced.
