Please note that depending on your version of software, there may be variations in the procedures:
- From Control Panel, select Internet Options > Connections tab.
- If you also have a dial-up connection, it should not be set to "Always dial my default connection."
- LAN Settings should be "Automatically detect settings" and leave the Proxy server settings blank.
- If your operating system or particular device is not mentioned above, in general, you should set your network options to "DHCP" for IP address assignment, and "Any" for network or SSID name.
- If your wireless network card software has the option to scan for the strongest signal that is usually preferable.
