Hi slmcgill,
Yep, that will happen.  You can try marking the executable to run as administrator. Might work, might not.

Do you mean to say that they cannot go into the wireless properties atall ..

Try this

go to control panel --> network connections

Right-click on Wireless connections

go to properites.

There they should see general , wireless networks , advanced

( Do they see all these)

Then they can go to wireless networks ., select the network they use and by pressing configure they can give WEP

Acually, reading the question more carefully, you might just be missingthe icon.  Log on as admin, explore to the location of the program shortcut, and copy to the All Users desktop.  Everyone will now have the icn.  It remains to be seen if they can run the program without admin rights.

My Company gives me user access and they maintain Admin rights. They granted me Admin right for 24 hours. I installed the 802.11 card and all worked great. When my admin rights were revoked I loss access to the card to input the WEP security. The ICONs exist on the PC however the PCMCIA card is no long recoginized when I double click on the ICON.

My access in the Network connection is limited to vie only because I do not have Admin access.

I can only log on to this PC as a user, but when I do I the ICONs for the network card are contained in the "All Users Desktop"

Thanks,
