Re: Wireless access

I'm pretty sure that XP's wireless properties has a check box to use
preferred networks only. Since his network should be running WEP and
have a unique SID etc. he can use that as his only preferred net.
I'm no expert, but I recently setup wireless for one of our mobile users
on a Tecra and I seem to recall seeing that option.

Hi, 
      I have a user who uses a wireless network at home. He just asked me
(it's a director) to find a way to avoid his laptop (Toshiba tecra running
XP Pro) connecting on the neighbor's router instead of his. He has a D-Link
614+, I don't know this model at all so I'm asking you guys if you know a
way to restrict his laptop to only HIS router.

As you can see, I'm not very familiar with Wireless :/

Thanks for any inputs
