Hi All:
I live in a condo, and am able to 'see' about 4 different wireless networks. All but one have WEP turned on. The last network, called 'linksys' does not have WEP turned on. For the last 3 weeks, I have been able to access the internet as a 'guest' of the linksys router on my Windows 2k laptop.
Beginning last Friday, I can no longer access the net...I still 'see' linksys, and there is no WEP turned on, but after running some tests, I get the following message: associated access point: no name specified; access point IP address 0.0.0.0.
So, am I stuck because linksys is now set up for no 'freeloaders'? Is there a way around this, or some software that will sniff out the info I need in order to access the net?
Any & all help is appreciated!

Copied from the rules for this site: "As you might expect, we don't want anything illegal going on here. Users cannot post hacks, cracks, pirated software, or anything of the like. Furthermore, we do not allow instructions on how to complete illegal activities, such as pirating. Please don't ask for advise on using illegal software, as it will be removed."

To access the internet, contact an Internet Service Provider in your area.
