I have a single desktop WinXP PC and a WPN111 - RangeMax Wireless USB2.0 Adapter.
in my house I can detect 3 to 5 access points, only one of them was completely unlocked. now that one is locked.
I seemed to have figured out the passphrases for most of them (i.e. password, admit and one is the name of the network!) including the once-unlocked but now-locked access point.
Entering in the passphrase on any of these does not unlock the router to allow me to access their internet connections -- how do I do this? Ss it simple, or does it require more equipment and/or software than I have?
They're all using WEP and not WPA, but I don't know if they're using64-bit or 128-bit encryption. this is the extent of my knowledge on the subject. would appreciate some info.
