Read what I said in my initial response, pay attention to the second sentence: "I thought you only needed that if you were going to be connecting to different networks. If you're always using the same network, you wouldn't need it." Notice the "if" clause. The original poster could have looked at that response, and determined whether it was of any aid to them, and that was all that was needed. Since *you* chose to *argue* the point, I pointed out that some people *do* only use a laptop in one place. You might recognise that. You might realise that you hadn't thought of it, and shutup. > Unless, of course, one is committed to argumentation.
