Here in the new building I work, the "host" company - the company renting space to our company - offers wireless guest-internet service. Both my work laptop (an HP) and my own personal laptop (PB 12") see the wireless signal, called "guest-internet," and seemingly connect without asking for any kind of password. However, I can't surf with either machine. The Powerbook gives no info as to why it doesn't work, but the HP wireless screen says it cannot obtain an IP address - "connection limited." What would cause a connection but lack of IP assignment? Is this something done on purpose where, perhaps, someone would have to register their computer with the host company and then be given an IP address first? I know, on my home wireless router, I can create such a scenario where no WPA/WEP is involved, but that I can set the router to limited range of IP addresses along with specific MAC addresses only being acceptable. Therefore, people can see the router, but not necessarily connect. I guess I'm just asking what you think might cause this lack of connectivity where I am. Ok. Done babbling..... for now.
