New WPA2 Update for Windows XP

Microsoft released a new update (KB917021) to enhance the Windows XP support for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) options in Wireless Group Policy (WGP), and to help prevent the Windows wireless client from advertising the wireless networks in its preferred networks list. Download this update here.

Among the enhancements added by this software include the following:

  • WPA2 support in wireless Group Policy settings
  • Changes for nonbroadcast networks
  • Changes in parking behavior
  • Changes for ad hoc networks

This update supercedes the first WPA2 update found in KB893357.
