    Networks do not show up?


    I have added 2 networks here

    but they do not show up here:


    How can I make them show up there to connect via these to the Internet?

    It's not clear what your asking are you trying to connect to a local router via WiFi or other?

    Very sorry about that, I am not quite sure to understand, I want to get access to the Internet with these new network connections, I have a router for this, WLAN, a o2 HomeBox 6641.

    Really cryptic. You can only connect to a SSID beacon when that wireless network is in range. If the SSID beacon is hidden, you would have to manually enter to connect when that network is in range.

    When more than your own Wireless/Wi-Fi connection shows up it usually is impossible to connect to the others if they are secured by their owner with a password that would need to be given to anyone they want to use their service. Or in other words, just because they show on your list doesn't mean you can connect to them. In the USA if one connects to their neighboring service without permission it can be considered theft of service.

    Sorry, do not understand, what you mean. It is a normal Internet connection with a router like most of the people will have.

    Really? Even if one only tries it (without having the password)?

    But, again, how can I show the 2 new WLAN networks (or whatever it is called) I created (first screenshot) in the area shown on the second screenshot to be able to connect to the Internet with one of these new networks?

    You do realize that bluring those SSID’s do not hide them from anyone who is near where you are physically located, even if you have created them. If you cannot see the SSID beacon with the physical SSID in available networks list, you would have to manually enter the SSID for the A/P that you own and created. If you do not own those Wifi networks or they are public, you would not be able to connect unless authorized.

    Yes your post is very cryptic, since it leaves out a lot of details and information for troubleshooting.

    Yes yes, extremely cryptic, I do not understand a word, very sorry.

    If you cannot see the SSID beacon with the physical SSID in available networks list, you would have to manually enter the SSID for the A/P that you own and created.
    How would I have to do it? What is SSID and what is A/P?
