    I recently got a job in medical informatics. I work at home and access the company's data base through a laptop supplied by the company. I didn't know when I hired on that the company forbids the use of a wireless connection. I have a wireless router and my office is on a different floor than my router. I can get the office hard wired, but in the meantime I was wanting to know if there is any way the company can know that I am using a wireless router. They are OK with me using the wireless router, as long as the laptop is physically connected. BTW, I have WAP on the wireless for security.

    I assume you are connecting through a VPN appliction? I hope you are using WPA2 for the wireless encryption.

    If they supplied the hardware, there may be monitoring software to keep you on task and make sure you are actually following their instructions
