My First Wireless Woes

Monday, May 12, 2003  

Suddenly my notebook running 802.11g stops working. I can't get a signal, yet I'm about 6 feet away from the access point without obstruction. It was the damndest thing. I finally tried changing the SSID and channel and, lo!, it worked. And another default SSID appeared in my choices. Apparently I have a neighbor with a wireless network that conflicts with my own. Well, sounds like someone needs a big ole DoS attack...haha. Just kidding. Really, though, defaults are bad and I should have changed that before. Once again, laziness strikes and the results are, well, frustrating. Laziness really doesn't hit hard because that requires effort. Right? Is this thing on?
