- I cannot access my wireless network in my home?
Most issues when connecting to a Wireless Network are caused by the network key that you have assigned to your wireless router. A wireless key is an essential security measure to prevent unwanted access to your wireless router & network. Depending on your ISP & equipment it is likely that you will have to assign the network key manually during the installation of your wireless router. If you are not sure whether you have a network key assigned to your router, it is important that you check all the documentation that accompanies your router to check how to create/change a network key.
There are different types of network key available. It is important that you take note of the type of key that you assign. Each key has different security credentials. We recommend that you use a WEP password key.
When you attempt to connect to your wireless network on your UMPC, you will be prompted to enter your full network key & type.
