I just bought my wife a HP notbook computer for when she is back in University in September. Ithought I may be able to "piggyback" of other peoples wireless connections in my neighberhood...but I guess secured connections wont allow me, as they all ask for id keys and passwords. So I tried hooking up my 5 or 6 year old microsoft wireless b router, and that didnt work either. I ended up buying a new D-Link wirles N router, and it works superbly.
My question is where can you actually use a wireless notebook? does SFU allow wireless connections? What other commen student places allow wireless connections? One of the main reasons I got this computer for her is so she can do her research papers etc anywhere she happens to be.
As you can tell, I am a notebook newbie
