    I have done it Yipee, all of my devices are now wirelessly connected, I am
    running SP2 and things are sweet. Windows configures the wireless network
    settings automatically and the security is good>> not great but good. The
    information bar can be a pain because almost everytime you go to a new site
    it is either warning you of a pop up or advising you that an active x
    control is needed. There are so many sites that require active x controls,
    how do we know which are safe and which are not. SP2 warns us that active x
    is potentially dangerous so how do we decide what is safe to download and
    what isn't?

    Every activex control is potentially dangerous. No site *needs* activex,
    they just use it to be sexy.

    As a rule of thumb you should only accept *signed* activex controls, and
    only from trusted sites, so once you put them into your trusted zone you
    shouldn't be continually bombarded with warnings.
