\015\0122) What type of Wireless infrastructure do you have at work?
a. Which wireless band is used at work? Wireless band a or b/g or n?
b. Does the wireless management application/utility "pick" wireless signals but you are unable to connect or no signals are "picked" up?
c. What wireless channel is being used at work?
\015\012
\015\012Note: Generally, wireless IEEE 802.11a cards cannot be used for 802.11b/g or 802.11n wireless networks. Some cards are rated 802.11a/b/g but they must be set to either 802.11a or 802.11b/g and not both. In the US wireless channels allowed are 1-11. Generally in Europe it is 1-14. Japan and other regions have there own specifications. Setting the wrong region (channel range) can cause signal problems.
