Thanks Snapper (love yr avatar). Yes, users are scattered over two floors so wireless is really the only way to go. I have been tracking thru my machine and so far have gone: Control panel/Network connections/Wireless connections/Properties-General,unchecked File&Printer Sharing/Wireless Networks-Preferred Networks=RTA1025+++/Properties/Association-gives me the SSID, Network Authentication=OPEN(or Shared or WPA or WPA-PSK), Data Encrytion=DISABLED(or WEP). If I enable WEP, the automatic key box is checked.
If I enable any of these, what effect will this have on other users?
I could of course just ring the helpline, but this is much more enjoyable & hopefully, other viewers may learn as I am. Cheers. Rob.
