Unless you can spoof a MAC id I think you may have to get your own internet service. megabyteme6662002 January 2, 2010 4:51:40 PM There is another thing too.. The routers transmit is usually a lot longer then YOUR transmit.. IE, you can see them.. but your card can't put enough power out to connect... If you want to fix that, get a bigger antenna :-) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
