I am unable to create a wireless connection to a wireless router or access
Verify that you are using the same Network name (SSID) and Security information
as the wireless router or access point. Perform the following steps to verify
and, if necessary, update the settings:
- Either right-click the Utility icon in the system tray and select Open
Utility or left-click the Utility icon once and then click Advanced.
- In the Wireless Networks tab, scroll through the list of available wireless
networks and locate the correct one. If you do not see the correct wireless
network, click Refresh to update the list. When you locate the correct
wireless network, select it and then click Configure. If the correct
wireless network still does not appear, click Add under the Preferred
networks section and manually update the appropriate information to create
- When the Properties window appears, verify and, if necessary, update the
appropriate connection and security information for the wireless network device.
Make sure the checkbox next to This is a computer-to-computer (ad hoc)
network is not selected. When you are finished, click OK.
- On the main screen, click Apply and a connection will be established.
