Default Puppy laptop internet connection

i have a laptop running puppy linux and i have just changed my internet broadband. My previous one was WPA but now its WPA2. For security reason i want to keep it WPA2 but the laptop is not connecting to it. It did connect with WPA im trying to figure out if its the laptops problem (the wireless card or something) or if Puppy linux is unable to connect to WPA2....
