Configuring a Windows Computer for Wireless Networking

Windows 2000 does not include any support for wireless networking. To configure wireless network access on a computer running Windows 2000, you must first install device drivers to enable the adapter and then use the client software supplied by the hardware manufacturer to configure the device. At a minimum, you'll need to specify the network name (SSID), specify the type of encryption used on your access point, and enter the shared encryption key.
