The passphrase only means that there is a security enabled on that wireless network. You are correct, you need to know that passphrase for you to be able to successfully connect your laptop to that wireless network.

If you need more help on how to get this passphrase just let me know.

Connectivity


Hi Joe,

That just depends on how you want to connect with your laptop.
If you need wireless access, then you have to use the WRT54G, because the RT31P2 has no wireless capabilities.
If you are connected via ethernet cable, then you can simply take the WRT54G out.

If you like to read up on different scenarios, here is my favorite page.

Enjoy!

Connecting to wireless router


I wouldent to that , not that way! since they track all activity that passes the router they track your laptop aswell.
If i where you i would have bought me a 3G broadband dongel for my laptop. No one sees you, no one tracks you, and you can use it wherever you are and you are anonymus

Using a company router for private surfing is always risky, IF you by mistake surf to an infekted site, your company will all over you.


Good luck to you

Need to get laptop connected to wireless connection


the wireless network is secure... you need talk to the person that set it up to get the network key
if that is not possible let me know ... there are ways around that
and after you have the key it should hook up with no problems... as long as the correct driver is installed for your wireless

A very challenging problem.

Can you try disabling auto network search? This could be done in your Control Panel/Folder Options/View tab. Pls verify that "Automatically search for network folders and printers" is unchecked.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
