With that in mind, I did what he said and reconfigured the airport base station without a WEP password. Eureka.
Meanwhile, I really have nothing to say today. It's hot… Um, I had that new grilled chicken from KFC for lunch. Not bad.
IT TOOK ME ALL MORNING TO CONFIGURE MY COMPUTER!! I think I have a reasonable right to brag about it. It's all in the password. They can be tricky. There's 40-bit passwords and there's 128-bit passwords. Then there's 40-be hex passwords and 128-bit ascii passwords. As if that wasn't enough, there's also WPA/WPA2 personal passwords. So I just had my first lesson on passwords. Jesus Crispy Fried Christ.
Tomorrow's big test will be if I didn't screw up the configuration to access the WIFI at work. Plus, if I do manage to get a strong wireless signal there, the other test is to see if connecting to that free public internet signal didn't go and screw up the settings for my home wireless network.
