Yeah

A lot of people have this problem when they first get a wireless connection. Look for a timeout setting in your network config. Some systems have a default where they timeout and reconnect. Check it out and reconnect. Let me know what happens

Do you have permission to use their wireless network? Thay may have enabled encryption or their WAP or router may simply be switched off.

It worked once. My brother set up the wireless for everyone because thats what he does for a living and he can't figure it out either.

In regards to the time out setting and reconnecting that doesn't seem to be working either. I have a 4 out of 5 bar signal strength so that is not the problem. Other obvious stuff is ok there just must be some small little thing i am forgetting about :tazz:
