  1. wireless network


    On first booting up my new windows PC it has connected to the Internet without asking for my Wireless Password Key. How can this be. I cannot find how to add in the key so I am worried about how I am connected and want to ensure that I am only logging on with WiFi I trust. How can I add my key when I can't see any option to add or change it?

    :)

    Change Wireless Network Connection Priority Order in Windows 10


    Hello Denis, wireless network :)

    The command in step 2 of Option Two should show your wireless networks listed in priority order. Top of the list is higher.

    Thanks for trying the steps again. It's now clear that the problem is on your router. To reconnect your laptop to the network, we suggest that you set or specify the channel of your wireless network. If you can access your router's user interface, set the
    channel to either channel 1, 6, or 11. Once done, remove your WiFi network from your preferred network list, then reconnect.

    Let us know the result.

    Regards.

    Vista or XP?

    You need to go in and delete the network. Then it will pick it up again, and ask you to enter the key again.

    On Vista, you do this by going into Networking and Sharing Center. The click on Customize, then click on Merge or delete network locations. Find the SSID of the router in the list, and delete it.

    On XP, I believe you have to go to Network Connections, then right click on your Wireless Adaptor. Go to Status, and there should be a button to Manage Wireless Networks, that should take you to where you need to be to delete the network.
