Default Hotspot netwok key

Hi,
I am using my Galaxy Mini as a portable hotspot.
Everything is ok when I leave the AP stting to "Open" but when I try to configure it for WPA2 PSK it asks for me to enter a network key.
I have a pci network card installed on my pc, what do I need to do please?
TIA Tom.

Use WPA2 security if you want to keep strangers away from your hotspot.

In your phone:
1. Set up a network name (I guess It's already done)
2. Choose a password (anything you want)

On your computer
1. Connect to the network whose name you set earlier
2. When prompted for a password enter the password you set earlier

It should work, don't hesitate to request assistance if it still doesn't

Thanks kadimi,
I've been on this all day and from what i can tell is my wireless card in the pc is old and will only accept WEP, it seems the phone is stuck with WPA2.
Unless I manage to update the card it looks like I am unfortunately out of luck.
Thanks for your advice.
Tom
