Yes, it is possible to connect to a wireless network outside of your home provided it is unsecured. That means you will not be asked for a password before you can wirelessly connect.

All you have to do is to search for an available network while in your car then connect to that network.

I have the same card with Tecra A4. It was working fine with a D-Link 615 wireless router then for no reason it stop working I was able to detect my wirless network but no communication session started between my card and the router. I restrat the router and change the OS fro Linux to XP but still I have the same problem.

At the end I notice that in simple words my card cannot talk at all with the router. So I went to the router wirless settings and change the protocol from:
mixed 802.11 N, mixed 802.11 G, mixed 802.11 B
to only
802.11 G and 802.11B

Then it works fine onb both Linux and XP

Can not find a non secure signal


hi..
sadly to say but there are no default key codes,its usually setup by the person who has setup the wireless networks,people are becoming more and more aware of the consequences of unsecured networks so most of them are securing the wireless networks,you can try connecting your laptop wirelessly to hotspot areas like airport,cafe and other places..incase if you want wireless internet from home and if you have mobile connection from verizon or sprint then you can get in touch with them and get wireless mobile broadband which will be your own wireless network and you donot have to depend upon someone elses unsecured network and the advantage of this type of wireless card is you can use the internet outside the home as well as when you are travelling...

Wireless Connection


Move your computer to different postions and see if the frequency of the problem changes. Take your computer to a wireless internet cafe and see what happens as you move around the cafe. If your computer works at the cafe, your wireless router may be defective.

Sending but not receiving packages


you need to check the settings on your firewall, as this will most likely try to block this incoming signal as a "Threat from an unknown source".

 

It's just trying to protect you.
