So there IS an easy way to name and secure my little network? If so, I
would greatly appreciate it if one of you wifi locksmiths could provide
me with step-by-step instructions. Here is the equipment list:
Router: US Robotics MAXg, Model 5461.
1. G4 Quicksilver 867. Tiger 10.4.11. This is the one I use the most to
go online. It picksup from the downstairs router using a Belkin 54g USB
Network Adapter/Ralink Wireless Utility driver, version 18.104.22.168u. (Note
to Kris Tilford: I saw your posts about this awhile back, but I didn't
then, and still do not need or want to upgrade it.)
2. G3/800 iBook. Tiger 10.4.11, has built in Airport. I use this to go
online a lot and may soon possibly be using it online as much or more
than the QS.
3. G4 1.5 GHz Mac Mini. Tiger 10.4.2. I usually don't go online with
this machine (it's my dedicated Sims Box), but it does have built-in
Airport and on infrequent occasions I do pop open Dashboard (to look at
the weather widget) or Safari for a quick informational surf to a Sims
4. My BF's work PC laptop (running Windoze XP) also needs to be able to
There is also a small but definite possibility I may play with trying to
get my pre-OS X Macs in on it, so it would be NICE if this would work
between 7.5.5 and 9.2.2.
Thanks in advance,
