Ok Set the SSID to your network name "453harribo90"

To personalise the wireless security settings on your SpeedTouch™:
1 Go to the SpeedTouch™ Web pages.
2 In the menu, select Home Network.
3 Click your WLAN.
4 In the upper right corner, click Configure.
5 On the Wireless Access Point page, you can modify the Security settings.

Make sure that broadcast network name is tick
and Wpa-psk is selected

On the Wireless Access Point page, you have the following options for the ACL:
New stations are
?? Allowed (automatically): All new stations can access the SpeedTouch™.

  ambra4 06:04 01 Jan 2008

The default WPA-Personal pass phrase is printed on the identification
label located at the bottom of the SpeedTouch™ and is unique for each device.

The WPA-Personal pass phrase must consist of 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 8 to 64 HEX digits.

Save on a flash drive as the same SSID name and Channel # and Security Code must be used on All wireless device when setting then up to access your wireless system

Make sure you use the same encryption or security level on the client as on your SpeedTouch™.

If for instance WPA-PSK is enabled on the SpeedTouch™, you must also configure the wireless client to use WPAPSK and configure the same WPA-PSK pass phrase

Go to laptop and connect to the SSID that you name the security request box will pop up you enter the same code as in the router just copy and paste from the flash drive
