Hey guys, I have XP at the moment, but its quite slow, So I have an windows 2000 disk right here, but I don't know of any wireless manager for windows 2000, I have the driver for it, but not a wireless manager so I can actually connect, I need one that supports WPA, are there any free ones available?

Win2k has no built-in support for wireless so any utility you get with any hardware (such as what gets installed when you run the disk) is your only option. These, unfortunately, tend to be badly coded useless pieces of garbage but for a legacy system it's all you have.

Every wireless card I've seen in the last few years had some sort of wireless utility for legacy systems on the CD. Unfortunately most of these will only control the card that they came with and while I have seen generic software available, none of them are listed as working under Windows 2000.
