I've built-in WiFi adapter in my notebook (made 5 years ago). Latest (dated 5 years ago) Windows drivers allow it to use WPA.

I'm using Lubuntu 10.10 but it allow me to use only WEP (same situation with Ubuntu 10.04). Is there a way to fix it?

The problem is with Bus 002 Device 002: ID 124a:168b AirVast PRISM3 WLAN Adapter.

D-Link is external USB and works good. I use it to work with net.

UPD 3: is there a copatible driver with WPA support?

Can you please do an "lspci" in a terminal and add the output to your question? –  Jorge Castro Nov 5 '10 at 1:16
    
The output of lsmod can be helpful too. This card is likely using the orinoco driver, but it doesn't hurt to be sure. –  Javier Rivera Nov 5 '10 at 12:12

According to the below article, the driver does not support WPA.

http://wiki.debian.org/linux-wlan-ng

Look in the known issues section.

Thanks Chris
