PC sees WPA2-PSK as WEP

Got a good one.

I recently did a fresh install of win7 on my PC, but it does not see my wireless security type correctly. I set up the wireless for WPA2 and my PC seems to think it is WEP.

I have 2 other laptops that are working and they both see the security type as WPA2. I'm baffled why my desktop does not.

Any ideas

    Do you have the latest driver for your wireless card? What type of card is it?

    Linksys something - it's a USB dongle type. I'll download the driver and see if that helps. Didn't need to do that for the laptops, but who knows
