How to add support for wireless networking WPA2-PSK [AES] on Windows

I have the problem on one of my machines that it is not possible to select WPA2-PSK [AES] network. It is missing in the network encryption dropdown (please see a picture below from my computer where it shows (and works), on the other computer the currently selected alternative AES does not show)

"Simply put, you need either a newer network card, or a newer driver.

Forget the brand of device you bought and just take a look in device manager for the actual chipset maker - Atheros, Realtek, Intel etc.

Go to the site and see if there is an updated driver you can use.

If an update does not work, it means that WPA2-PSK is simply not compatible with your current card and you will have to buy another."

Make sure you have (at least) Service Pack 2 installed. If you can't install it for some reason, there's a hotfix.
