Let's say you buy a notebook witha wireless card. You go to a Starbucks that is a "hotspot". Do you need any information or can you just click on the net?

windows uses zero configuration utility to set up wireless connections, SP2 version of this works better than the prior...

I Use alot of networks (40-50) so i have my laptop to connect to any wireless in range. windows wireless is verry plug and play

if you have problems with your wireless needing to be repaired often i find a handy script i use is.....

On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objNetworkSettings = objWMIService.Get("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")
objNetworkSettings.ReleaseDHCPLeaseAll()
objNetworkSettings.RenewDHCPLeaseAll()


Saved as a vbs file

works great when you switch networks and is faster than windows repair utility
