Up until today I had a stable home network with 2 PCs and 2 laptops connected to a wireless Netgear DG824M (2 hardwired and 2 wireless). Difference today was that I changed isp to SKY and installed my new Netgear DG834GT now my hardwired PC and laptop (through docking station) and a wireless laptop all have access but one PC no longer recognises the wireless connection. I suspect that it may have to do with the fact that my new router uses security protocol WPA, I previously used WEP. The network card on my PC is a Netgear MA311 and I am not sure if it is compatible or not. Do I need to buy a newer card that is WPA compliant? Don't want to be spending if I don't have to!

I did some quick searching and found that the card does not natively support WPA, but I did find an article on how to make it so.
