Connecting to a security enabled sys,other than mine
I like to connect to another security enabled system(similar to mine ) at my cottage at certain times ; but unable to see his when looking at available networks.I have his code but both my computers will not even see his network.Other computers with built in wireless have no problem.
I see no solution to this other than reload the program using his code,which is obvious not a practical solution

Re: connecting to a security enabled sys,other than mine
When you look at your computer screen lower right corner see the flashing TV screens which show the Wireless connections. Put the mouse over the icon and right click. Choose "repair" and then restart your computer and see if it now can see his network.

the security enabled in the router is compatible with mobile but not with computer this is the reason...check the security enabled in your router...64 bit WEP (open) security is compatible with all the wireless devices... by default some routers will have WPA or WEP(shared) security... these securities are not compatible with certain computers...
you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection.
hope this helps.
I suggest uninstalling and re-installing (which the operating system will prompt you to let it do automatically) the Intel PRO wireless device. That should do it. If you must provide authentication details in order to connect to a given access point (if it is Secure), then you'll need to do that again (manually) also.
Before doing so, make sure that you're running the DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) service. That's what enables wireless devices to get an IP address on the LAN to which you're trying to connect. Also make sure that the manufacturer's or your operating system's utility required to actuate the device Service is running.
To examine and modify (use caution here) system Services in Windows, Run the following command from a command line: services.msc
If User Access Control is enabled (it is enabled by default), it will prompt you for permission to run the MMC (Microsoft Management Console) required to change the state or setup of your system Services first. In order for the wireless device to connect it must both have said utility running (mine in Vista Business is called WLAN AutoConfig--make sure it's set to start in Automatic mode before you reboot).
To uninstall the device in Windows (Mac will be similar), right-click it from its listing the Device Manager (use Windows Help if you don't know how to run the Device Manager) applet and select Uninstall this device... You will also need to reboot because devices have "monitor/system level priority" and rebooting will ensure that the system will talk directly to the correct(ed) driver for the device.
The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.
go into ur wireless network properties.click internet protocol.check settings .if obtain ip auto is checked.connect to the unsecured network to obtain details..ip,gateway , dns etc.
disconnect go back to wireless properties and select use the following ip/dns in internet protocol and type in the details..this will get u connected..once connected left click on connected icon in sys tray and select repair this should make changes to ip and dns..it may change it may not ..if not it doesnt need to.
Inability to access certain websites is due to three main factors.
Security on the web browser is set too high
MTU not set on the router properly
Lowering Down the Security Settings on Internet Explorer
Step 1: Double-click Internet Explorer and click Tools. Step 2: Select Internet Options, click Security then CustomLevel. A window similar to Step 3 will appear. Step 3: Select Medium-low under the Resetto drop-down menu.
If this did not work, you may try to:
-- enable the MTU on the router.
-- forward port 443 on the router
I have the same model router at home, just checked the settings, you should be able to pass through the router with a normal vpn connection.
If you use a special VPN client, like a CheckPoint Secure VPN client, the router might block it. Also you might want to ask your office's sys admin if you are not blocked by the firewall or something similar. Your office's sys admin will prolly solve your problem since he knows your work network's configuration and setup and how to connect to it.
