Hi Everybody,

This is my first post so please forgive if its a little long winded. My problem is two fold. My wife has a HPnx 9105 laptop which she uses for work and at home. We have a linksys WAG354G router at home, and a 2WIRE323 at the office/shop. These are recent developments, so I want to be able to make the facility secure, when Tina logs on. Any advice on how to do this would be gratefully received. {problem 1}

Problem 2: When tina fires up the laptop at work, it recognises the router straight away and allows her to connect to her business broadband connection without any issues. When she comes home and attempts to log on, the computer no longer recognises the Linksys and we have to instruct the computer to allow Windows to handle the connection settings before we can succesfully connect. We are using btconnect business broadband in the shop, and btinternet broadband at home, If any body recognises were my problem may lye, I should be grateful for any feedback.

Regards,

Allan.

Problem 1
WEP Encryption
WPA Wireless Encryption

Problem 2
What you could try is to connect the laptop via an UTP cable to router to see whether it is working or not. Does this makes any sence to you?

Here is the support page for your router

Many thanks again,
