, ND I went to Network adapters under "Device Manager".
For the record, in Windows XP, Start -> Control Panel -> System ->
Hardware Management -> Device Managers -> expand Network adaptors ->
Right click on the wireless device, and select Properties.
I am doing this checking from a laptop with wireless capability (g). The channel is showing to be 11. I now remember that after I created my own net key for WPA, initially at channel 6 (tech support asked me to leave it hat way), I couldn't get onto the wireless network, actually, I didn't see my network and so I called the tech support and he made me change to channel 11. (It was during this time, he also made me turn the modem to a bridge and set PPPoE for connection type in the router).
During that setup, I also changed my net key to dice words. So my question now is could I have been able to keep my non-diceword key and get onto the network once the channel was changed to 11 (without turning the modem to a bridge, etc.)? At this point,I would not change my diceword based net key but want to understand whether problem of not being able to get onto the network, actually couldn't even see the network, was channel issue only or not.
