Posting hear as not many look at the Networking Forum. If I cannot get any help on this I will tick and post there

trying to get a Vista Laptop to connect to 3Com Router, I got his info in Vista command Prompt. What does it mean and how can I use the Info to connect??????

C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan add filter networktype=infrastructure
One or more parameters for the command are not correct or missing.

Usage: add filter [permission=]allow|block|denyall [[ssid=] string>]


Tag Value
permission - Permission type of the filter.
ssid - SSID of the wireless network.
networktype - Network type of the wireless network.


Adds a wireless network into the allowed and blocked network list
configured on the system.

Parameter ssid is required if permission is allow or block. If permission
is denyall then parameter ssid should not be given.


add filter permission=allow ssid=ssid1 networktype=infrastructure
add filter permission=block ssid=ssid2 networktype=adhoc
add filter permission=denyall networktype=adhoc
