pc that is connected and working.
2. disable your security for a few minutes.
3. does lappy connect? if no go to next step.
4. go to the control panel. network connections, wireless card settings right click on the wireless

OK. I downloaded the .pdf of the manual. Your steps are correct--as far as they go. But I believe mblah requires somewhat more detailed
We'll work out details for downloading the manual in a minute. But first let's back up a bit.
It is possible for your guest user to connect by cable while others are connected wirelessly. As someone pointed out, that's pretty much the purpose
of a router. It only requires an Ethernet cable of sufficient length to connect from the laptop to the router. Note that you would want to temporarily
disable their wireless radio on their laptop and re-enable their local network "device." We'll cover that if it comes to that. (Specific instructions
concerning these settings depend entirely upon what operating system you're using--or your guest is using.)
You'll still want the manual whether connecting by cable or wireless. The .pdf is here:
Cisco Valet M10/Linksys E1000 User Guide
It turns out that the USB "key" I was thinking of earlier is one that you make using instructions contained in the manual. You make the "key" and then
insert it into each machine you want to connect. Instructions are in the manual.
Try that first, before getting into the grinding technical details of networking. If the "key" method works--GOOD. If not we can get down into the
dirt and try again.
