Connecting to internet

By kathy5701 ·
I have a work laptop that has a cisco airnet card. I am a field salesperson and i should be able to connect anywhere hot spots are. I have had some difficulties. Currently my goal is to connect wirelessly to our home internet. Here are the details: have a desk top computer at home connected to Broadband Comcast high speed internet. We also have a router and modem. My laptop does not seem to understand my connection. I called our help desk and they said they cannot give us the information on how to do it although it is possible to connect. There are concerns about liability if someone hacked or spyed in. How can I do this, please help?

If your help desk can not provide the details due to liability issues.....

..... what makes you think you will find that information here?

Sorry, but nobody here will subject themselves to the same liabilities mentioned. You will have to deal with your provider and their help desk.

Can't help ya', but I can tell you about a nice Italian restaurant in Salem

by Nonapeptide In reply to Connecting to internet

It's on 180 High St downtown next to the Elsinore. It's called Davinci's. Don't go to Alessandro's unless you like heavy sauces. You know, the kind that sits on the stove for three days and then burns through the varnish on the tables if you spill it.

I lived in Salem for many years. Nice place, but always feels like the ugly step-sister of Portland and Eugene (pronounced yoo-GENE, emphasis on the last syllable).

RE My laptop does not seem to understand my connection

It's not just the NB that doesn't understand the connection.

You have a Cable Internet Connection through a Router & Modem right? But you didn't make any mention of a WiFi Access Point. So I'm not sure just what you expect to happen here.
