I just installed a new wireless router at home. Before, my network was purely wired. I was able to get the new router configured to work with my wired PCs, but when I tried to use WEP encryption on the wireless side, the stupid thing wouldn't give my laptop an IP address. Argh!
I kept trying to repair the connection, but I finally gave up and went completely without security. My son needs the big PC for homework, so I can't go and try different settings. For the next few hours, the backdoor to our home network will be wide open. Come on by and grab an IP address. They're free to all!
Update: Ha! You waited too long. The door is shut - the encryption is turned on. No more free IPs for you. From now on I shall charge $801.11 per IP address.
