So I got a Sony GPRS card for the work laptop and the "Communication Manager" software takes over the control of the built in WiFi gear in the laptop. On the one hand, this is annoying since I'm not sure how to properly configure it to work with my home access point. On the other hand it seems that the paid service covers WiFi connections at a wide variety of locations. Plus the thing doesn't get GPRS service at my office or here at the kitchen table, but then again I don't need it here or there since I'm fully wired up in both places.
I'm so confused.
