|When it comes to your work environment the best advice I can give you is this:|
Do not take it upon yourself to do anything. ALWAYS take suggestions/requests to your IT department.
I say this because one of my many duties is to regularly scan for rogue wireless networks. Since starting here 6+ years ago it's occurred twice that an employee brought a wireless router in to work and setup their own wireless network without the IT departments knowledge, or permission Neither person who did this works here any longer. They were terminated immediately for doing this.
I find it hard to believe you can't connect to a wireless network with your phones.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
