I am trying to configure my home network, but It is not possible to choose wireless security with WPA2, and it is only available WEP. I installed all the drivers and updates for windows.
I read that the WPA2 was available to PCs with windows XP with SP3.
Can anyone help me?.
Thank you for your help
:)

WPA2 is available in XP SP3 but you need a wireless card that supports WPA2 as well, as well as a router that can transmit WPA2 encryption. Otherwise such a security option will not be available.

Without pre-requisites you can't do what you want. You need WPA2 hardware before you can use WPA2 encryption, much like you need a driving licence, insurance and road tax before you can drive the car down the road.

The wireless is embeded into the computer, and I downloaded the last drivers for it few days ago, and I thought it have the WPA2
