Default Wireless

Does anyone know how to use/connect to the wireless internet when you are off-campus (such as, when I am at home)? I have tried connecting to the local/found WLAN from the ThinkVantage Access Connections. (Hope that makes sense - I'm not very computer savvy).

Corey, you need to search for an access point under the think vantage connections section. Then when you find one you might need to upload information into your laptop so the wireless access approvals of your computer. I had to do that at home, its just putting in the wireless router's ID if it is protected by a firewall.

Make sure that your wireless switch is on. It is located on the bottom left corner of your laptop just under your windows vista sticker. If should be pushed to the right(on). Then ThinkVantange Access should be able to find wireless networks in your home.

If your wireless network at home is encrypted (password protected/not open), you'll need to configure your computer. If it is open, just go to wireless connection status -> find WLAN -> click on your network and click connect. If it has a lock next to the name, it's encrypted. It'll tell you you need to modify your settings (or whatever it says), and then you'll need to input the WEP/wireless password that came with your router.
