Connecting to Linksys Wirelss G Access Point
Posted on 2005-04-24
My question probably has an easy answer... but for the life of me, I can't seem to find a solution. I recently set up the following system at work: Several Toshiba laptops with Atheros AR500AG Wireless Nic card and a Westell A90-327W10-06 VersaLink router. On top of the wonderful freedom that notebooks provide in an intensive business setting, they are all networked together which makes file and print sharing a breeze regardless of where anyone is in the office. To aid in allowing employees to work from home and ultimately set up VPN's, I purchased each of them a Linksys Wirelss G Access Point to piggt back on their DSL services (each employee already had DSL and a router supplied through a vairety of Vendors that include Verizon, Time Warner, Metrocast, and Comcast.
Here lies the problem, As soon as we load the software that comes with the Access Points onto the laptops it appears to overwrite or disable the already configured wireless office network setting. Once the software hase been deleted (or is restored to an earlier date), prior connectivity is resotred. How do I install either so that whether at home or at the office, employees can take advantage of wireless connectivity. Ultimately, my goal is tos establish wirelss VPN's for file sharing.
