An access point is created with default WLAN settings for the
chosen WLAN network.

This procedure walks you through configuring an Access Point named “linksys” that uses WEP for its security mode. You must use your Access Point or router’s information.

Search for WLAN > Select the WLAN.
4. Press Options.
5. Select New Access Point > Use Default Settings.
6. Assign values to Settings.
* Connection: Home (This name is how you will identify the WLAN)
* Data bearer: Wireless LAN
* WLAN netw. name > Search for netw. > select the access point: linksys.
