Sheesh!

Just installed ANOTHER wireless access point in my house. So if you are cruising
down Aberdeen Street, you have your choice of two wireless networks to try and
hack into.
The company my wife works for (think airplanes) doesn't support anything other
than a Linksys wireless router to the point that they *gave* her one to bring
home. As I already had one (that all of the rest of our devices could connect to,
but not her work laptop, though it used to) we now have two. <shaking head> It'll
be interesting to see if her work laptop can connect to either wireless device.
One interesting note, the Linksys's minimum security level is 128bit (although
the airplane company support folks swear up and down that all their equipment is
64 bites). We'll see ....

I have a Linksys at home, and I've found that every time I want to set
up a new computer, I have to turn off all the others, get the new one
connected, and then turn everything else back on (three kids computers
and my two)

That's horrible! I hate wireless. It's great when
you get it working and don't have to do anything
anymore because it's convenient. But the
reliability of them sometimes? Absolutely
horrible.

Re: Sheesh!

That would really tick me off. Im not that desperate to use their network though, I tend to spend time with her instead of the laptop when Im over there, but there are some occasions where I would like to send something to their computer for her brother. Lifes so harsh sometimes lol

I love my Linksys WRT54G. Of course, I love it a lot more since I
replaced the factory firmware with ddwrt.

That is the model that Momma brought home from work. But I ain't
touching it as it works for Momma's work PC.
