  • No security (for example, a public access point in

an airport)

authentication)

authentication, including WPA1 and WPA2)

The security level of the network affects the settings that are shown when you select Next.

If you select No to skip the scan for WLAN networks, the following settings are shown:

Network name (SSID)—Enter the name of the WLAN network. If you create an ad hoc network, ensure that the name of the network is unique. When you connect to the internet over WLAN, the connection is based on this information. If the field is dimmed and cannot be edited, the scanned SSID contains characters entered in an unknown character set, and not standard character sets (UTF-8) as the device expects.

Network is hidden—You must select this option if the name of your WLAN network is hidden. When this option is selected, your device actively searches for the hidden WLAN when you establish an internet connection.
