The second laptop's current OS/security setup is as below :-
a) Win-XP SP2 (completely patched, vetted by Secunia)
b ) AVG AV/AS free 9.0
c) ZA firewall free 7.0.483
d) Sundry utilities/protection software : Ccleaner, Spywareblaster
e) Safe browsing habit
Yes, I shall be upgrading the OS to XP-SP3 within the next three months.
Since I do not understand the wireless security aspects, I had requested a friend, more knowledgeable than me, to do the wireless setup. He tried to setup the router for WPA, but could not due to unknown reasons, so settled with "open system - WEP enabled".
Please advise how to make the second laptop work in WPA mode.
