Yes he does - you have an incredible ability to jump to conclusions (not 
a bad thing in itself, but it must get you in at least as much trouble 
as it gets you out of).  So that just means that with _his_ router, and 
no password, everything works.  It doesn't mean that there isn't a wifi 
problem - and right now things are pointing to the iwl3945 bug that 
prevents it from accessing channel 13 properly.
