    Window 10 64bit

    Changing Main Network ID inputs .. Windows 10 64bit


    Recently, a friend of mine, wholly novice where considering the idea of the main focus of my post here (main subject heading), and, if with a tad bit of coaching from me, tried to connect her "Brother" (brand) low-end priced InkJet Printer, wirelessly, to her HP Laptop, running Windows 10.

    And got the following "error message" "Solution". ...

    — Certainly "greek" to her.

    And if also certainly, somewhat unclear to me.

    WLAN report

    Connection failed.
    *** Solution***
    The Security Information (SSID/Network Key) is incorrect.
    Reconfirm the SSID and security information (Network Key).
    - How to confirm wireless security information (SSID/authentication method/
    encryption method/Network Key).

    1) The Default security settings may be provided on a label attached to the WLAN access point/router. Or the manufacturer's name or model no. of the WLAN access point/router may be used as the default security settings.

    2) See the documentation provided with your WLAN access point/router for information on how to find the security settings.

    * If WLAN access point/router is set to not broadcast the SSID, the SSID will not automatically be detected. You will have to manually enter the SSID name.

    * The Network key may also be described as the Password, Security Key or Encryption Key.

    If you do not know the SSID and wireless security settings of your WLAN access point/router or how to change the configuration, see the documentation provided with your WLAN access point/router, as the manufacturer of your access point/router or ask to your Internet provider or network administrator. (Message end.)

    .. Unclear to myself more, if more only because I'm a "Macintosh User". .... And with this, when it comes to the idea changing of the main "Network" / "Wireless" / "Internet Sharing" inputs ("SSID", I understand, main Network ID, and "Network Key", "password".) I'm not familiar quite, enough, with "Windows / PC" to be able to locate and change these "Settings".

    .... Any help here perhaps, before I perhaps delineate further.?

    — Appreciate your time.

    Thanks Samuria, ... Pretty much what I'd expected. ..

    .. What I need to know otherwise—and connected to my being mainly a Macintosh User more—is just where and how to go about changing what's currently showing up as each, to something other. ... This, on the main Laptop, sending the signal. Again here, an Hewlett Packard model, running Windows 10 (64bit).

    — And again here, Appreciate your time.
