Re-installing Windows

Evening all

Going to re-install windows due to a few issues that cannot be resolved. This mainly applies to a problem with system restore, most important. Could anyone tell me what settings I will need to save or record manually to regain my wireless internet setting. TIA Tango18

You will need your SSID, i.e. the name of the wireless network, and your security key. Did you set the wifi up yourself, do you not have the key written down anywhere? If not, you should be able to retrieve it from the routers interface.

Worst case senario, you just type a new key into your router and use the same when you reconnect to your wifi.
