[access-uk] Re: Laptop connection to network problem

Hi, this is where, like you said, you need to enter the wep key. I also stated that you should be able to enter the wep key through your connection's properties. Hope that helps.

Hi Chris - I was given the option to save this network, and connect automatically; what the problem is, is that the laptop has connected to the network, but hasn't got access to the internet. It looks like I need to do something so that the laptop has access to the internet when on the etwork -

| Hi Andy, although this wireless connection I use here uses WPA-personal,

| able to set these in the connection's properties. If you want to know
| how to get there in the first place, give us a shout. Hope that helps.
