I have never had a wireless network. I am not going to broadcast the SSID because I do not want the neighborhood finding it and trying to break the encryption code. I will give instructions to all users on how to connect to the
system.
What I have not figured out is once the connection is entered into the preferred list or any other connection for that matter, the first time you connect to the connection, the Windows XP wireless support asks if you are connecting to Home, Office, Away, or Custom. I find no details about what the differences may be for each of these settings. Does anyone know?
Google is no help either.

There is no difference in how it connects, Windows is just trying to help you organize your list of wireless networks in case you connect to more than one.
