WPA2 support in wireless Group Policy settings

WPA2 support in wireless Group Policy settings
A computer that has the WPA2/WPS IE Update installed lets users manually configure options for WPA2 authentication and encryption. However, until the Wireless Client Update is installed, network administrators cannot centrally configure WPA2 options by using the Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies node of Computer Configuration Group Policy. Computers that have Windows XP Service Pack 2 and the Wireless Client Update installed can apply these configuration options when they configure the computers by using Computer Configuration Group Policy.

To configure WPA2 authentication settings for wireless clients that are running Windows XP with SP2, the client computers must be members of a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory domain. The clients must also have the Wireless Client Update for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 installed. The WPA2 authentication settings must be configured from the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server Code Name ?Longhorn.? For an example configuration in a test lab, see the Windows Vista Wireless Networking Evaluation Guide. To obtain this guide, visit the follow Microsoft Web site:
