|Here is how she describes her issue.|
leslie: i have a question reguarding my internet connection
leslie: i am at an internet cafe near my apt that has lap top set ups and he changed something for wireless that had numbers (like a code) and when he clicked the other thing the numbers went away and I went back to try changing it back and the numbers didnt appear. I dont have those numbers and he said they usually appear when wireless is in range but i want to make sure he was being honest.
leslie: it was under "local area connection properties" and he clicked on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) the he clicked on "Obtain an IP address Automatically" from what it was on which was "Use the following IP address:" and there were many numbers under that heading, "IP address:, Subnet mask:, and Default gateway:".
leslie: check your aol email account, i sent you an invite to help me figure out this code thing
leslie: i am signing off the internet now so i wont be able to be on my computer until we figure out the code, or if the codes come up when a wireless network is in range (like the man said would happen). Ill check my email tomorrow morning in class at 9am here, so send me and email letting me know the status please.
leslie: under "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" it says:
leslie: "You can get IP settings assigned automatically if your network supports this capability. Otherwise, you need to ask you network administrator for the appropriate IP seetings."
leslie: It is selecting "Obtain an IP address automatically" right now but did select "Use the following IP address:" before which is where all the numbers had been entered. I dont know if this problem will resolve itself automatically tomorrow when I encounter the school's wireless network and if the numbers will pop up again or if i need to manually enter all the codes, but i would just like to figure it out asap so i dont need to go longer than necessary without wireless capabilities at school. Thank You!
