thats the error message i get.

cany anyone help me figure this out? itsa picking up 40% of the sigal from the hotel i think.
how fast is wireless compared to dial up usually?
can i magnify the receivers range? is this the right part or do i need the antenna thing.

you have the right piece of hardware, but they might have security measures other than a password in place on the network. also, why do you have so many windows open o_O?
