This window has View you basic network information and set up connections
It then shows Finch(name of netbook) under a picture of a monitor and a line to a globe with internet under it There is a red X between Finch and Network
Under that it says View your active networks with a line to connect to a network
Under the line it says you are currently not connecteld to any networks. If I click connect I get Customer with 5 green bars and if I click connect it says windows unable to connect to Customer.
Under the You are currently not connected to any networks it has Connect your network settings
Under this is Set up a new network
Connect to a network
Choose homegroup and sharing options
I cannot see the items you have referred to that are on this page, this is all there has ever been on this page. Sorry to be so obtuse
I clicked set up a new network, It says Choose the wireless router or access point you want to configure.
Below that it says It might take 90 seconds for unconfigured devices on your network to appear.
It has been a few minutes and nothing has appeared
On the connection tab it says security type: - Shared
Encryption type: WEP for the Network security key it has 8 dots
under this it has a blue and yellow shield in front of a small box unmarked followed by show characters
under this is key index: with 1 in a small box
This is exactly the same as on my notebook minus the blue and yellow shield in front of the show characters box
On the security tab it says security type: - Shared
On the Connection tab it has Name: Customer, SSID Customer, Network type: access type
Network availability: alll users Coonet automatically when this network is in range is checked. Connect to a more preferred network if available is checked. Sorry I left this off my most recent message
The box after the shield will only accept a check the numbers that appear for the security key, 6D61727930 just as on my laptop 8 dots, but 9 numbers and a letter
below it for the key index already has 1 in it just as on my laptop
I clicked ok and then tried to connect again it indicated it was connecting, but the same messgae windows cannot connect with Customer came back
I bought it from Amazon.com I will see what the other expert advises
Thanks for trying
