browsers do not connect to internet, see wireless access point strength 100%
Posted on 2006-11-24
Imagine going to starbucks seeing the network, and not being able to connect. Screen says network strength 100%. same at home.
xp2, ie and mozilla, linksys wap.
After searching through e-e and trying different things, drilled down in tcp/ip as far as I could go, to the tcp/ip filtering screen. I noted that the radio buttons were set to 'permit only, all three boxes were blank, and that the enable tcp/ip filtering was not enabled. Having no clue what these did, i enabled the tcp/ip filtering box, and set the 'permit all' buttons.
now I hit the wireless networks.
What happened to these buttons to cause this, what do these settings do, are there any security issues?
