Hi, I have a new laptop; Toshiba Satellite
&I want to connect to the internet to it. Although, all the 'secured' networks are password protected, and have low bars. But, there is one network that is 'unsecured', which has all very high bars. Is it safe using the unsecured network?
How can I use a 'secured' network, with/without the password?

also, just in case you want to know; I have a dsl connected to my desktop.

If you are asking how to connect to someone else's network, we don't do that here.

If you buy a wireless router and set up your own network that is different. And the instructions on how to set it up and make it secure come with the router.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Me thinks, New lap top and new to wireless! Secured networks are setup just for that reason people want to try to maintain their privacy, unsecured are very iffy! I know quite a few people that do use unsecured, the problem is it leaves their computers open to other eyes kind of a "Catch 22" there are no free rides without risk!! I would go out and get a wireless router and setup your own private secure network, I can go almost 200 feet from my modem over to my neighbors house and still have a workable signal, under $100 you are in business.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
