Bill, I would be more than happy to help you with your problem. Can you
tell me more about the problem?
What build are the laptops running? (they shipped with 650)
What kind of routers, and did you set them up with encryption? They likely
came with *something* if you didn't directly.
If you'd like it out via phone let me know and I'll send you my number off
