Wireless on protected company computer
I'm trying to use my company laptop at home through my wireless router. The laptop is protected and I am unable to install any drivers, so there goes my wireless card. I just want to be able to send my daily info w/o having to go back into the office and plug in. I'm thinking some sort of POE device would work. Any suggestions!? Thanks!
what OS are you running on this laptop?
Although this answer costs money...it would possibly fix your problem. If you purchase a common wireless adapter, like the edimax EW-7318USG ($29.99), you could just stick it in your USB port and some OS's....like an up-to-date Windows XP, will just install the drivers all by itself and start working. This assumes your system will find the right drivers on its own.
Maybe that will help, I'm not even half as smart as most of the folks on the forum, so if you don't want to risk $30, wait for a better answer!
Thanks for responding. My OS is XP. I don't think it will work. My laptop was not set up for wireless and has no wireless software installed. Plus my USB port is 1.1.
I tried plugging in the access point I use on my XBox and it worked, but it must be plugged into the wall. I need something that is battery powered or that will run off the computers power.
