Wireless Tip of the Weekend

If you're unfortunate enough to be relegated to use a PC, check to make sure you've upgraded to WinXP Service Pack 2 before you attempt to connect to any wireless routers made in the last decade. If you have not, you'll have to figure out what the heck a "network key" is instead of a wireless password. Silly Windows.

SP2 has been out since 2004, so even if you have never owned a computer of any stripe, odds are you have SP2.

As for network settings, on most PCs, if you past your IP address into your browser, it will display your network key, and a slew of other connection-related info. (This might only work for wireless connections, though.)
