  1. what program are you using to manage wireless connection?
    What is your Understanding(Tech Level if you will) for wireless connections? so i know if i can skip over basics.

    you may need to change the security setup on the wireless router if its WEP2 your computer might not have a capable card as it was not prevalent in 2004.
