Hello Chantalallie

Is the laptop able to connect to the Internet wirelessly over other networks? (say at a coffee shop or Internet cafe, etc.)

(We want to pin down whether or not the issue is w/ your laptop or w/ the router.)

If the laptop is not functioning wirelessly at all now, make sure that the wireless radio button on your laptop has not been inadvertently placed in the OFF position. Where that button is located varies w/ ea. laptop. If you're not familiar w/ where it is, look closely along the sides and front of your laptop and above the keyboard (below the monitor).

Still on the assumption that your laptop's wireless radio is not working:
(A) Click on START
(B) Click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS
You should see a connection called "Wireless" or something similar.
(C) Check to see if that connection is DISABLED.
(D) If it is, right click on it and choose ENABLE

OK, now we'll await your answers before proceeding as doing so now would necessitate making assumptions regarding your equipment, operating system, etc. that may not be correct.


Thank you,
BJ

My employer gave me a Dell 6400 Latitude Laptop to use at home through a VPN connection. I have a plug in connection at home. How do I hook up my laptop at home?


Connect your ethernet cable from your Broadband modem into your laptop. Make sure you can browse webpages. Open the VPN software installed by your employer, and enter your login credentials assigned by your employer to authenicate. Once connected, you will have Network Access and Intranet Connections to your workplace. This will work from WiFi hotspots, hotels, Internet cafes, etc. If you do not yet have your VPN software installed, or have your credentials, speak to your employer as they may need to create and account and a certificate for your VPN connection.

Cannot connect to SonicWall VPN


My guess is that dhcp is using the same private network scheme. Try changing your home network scheme to something different than your office.
For example:
Office = 192.168.1.x
home = 192.168.2.x

DI 524 Router Not able to connect to office VPN on Wireless


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.
