Have taken my wireless enabled laptop travelling and have managed to connect to a network called Linksys that is showing as unsecured but i cannot actually get onto the internet. What do i have to do to actually connect to the net? Do i need to change some setting on my laptop?
Am running XP SP2 and have Netgear Wireles Network Card. When im at home i don't have any problems.
You may see the Internet connection but it may not let you connect as it will have a SSID you need to know and there may be other settings even though it says unsecured. How thay set it up can still stop you connecting. you could try this they may not have changed the password for router Type in the blank Web page address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 press enter after each try
