Can't access settings for client in wireless network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Oliver Costich, Apr 12, 2009.

  1. Client is XP Pro SP3. Router Linksys WRT54G. I an trying to access the
    security and authentification settings. I can do it on my other
    systems but using the usual method doesn't work, From MS:

    1) Open Network Connections.

    2) For a wireless connection, do the following:
    Click the wireless connection, and then, under Network Tasks, click
    Change settings of this connection. On the Wireless Networks tab,
    click a wireless network in the list, and then click Properties.

    And that's as far as I can get because "change settings of this
    connection" isn't there.

    Where did it go and how do I get it back?

    It seems that you are trying to access the properties settings in a
    non-administrator type account. Limited user type accounts would
    normally "block" access to these settings.
