Next Generation Control - Wireless Network - Connections

This procedure tells you about the settings you use to connect a machine with the Next Generation Control to a wireless network.

Prerequisites

The machine can connect to a 2.4 GHz, 802.11b/g/n wireless network.
note: 5 GHz wireless networks are not supported.
Before you begin, ask your network administrator if your network has a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. If it does not have a DHCP server, collect this information:
  • The IP address that your machine will use on the network
  • The subnet Mask address
  • The Default Gateway address
  • The DNS Server name
You also need this information:
  • The SSID for your wireless network
  • The password to connect to your secured wireless network
note: Make sure that SSID broadcasting is enabled on your wireless network. The Connection Wizard can not find networks with SSID broadcasting disabled.

Step 1

Push SETTING.

Select the Network tab [1].

Select the Wireless Connection tab [2].

Push F2 [3] to show all of the available wireless networks.
note: Make sure that SSID broadcasting is enabled on your wireless network. The Connection Wizard can not find wireless networks that have SSID broadcasting disabled.

The display shows the values of the settings, the MAC Address, Status and other important information.

Go to Step 2 for more information on these settings.

Step 2

Wireless Network Status
Value Meaning
Status * The wireless connection is disabled.
Status UP The machine is connected to a wireless network.
Status DOWN The machine is not connected to a wireless network.
Status DORMANT The machine is waiting for external action. Typically it is waiting for association or authentication with the access point.

F4 Reconnect Push F4 to connect to the wireless network again.

Step 3

The Connection Wizard displays a list of available networks, with their signal strengths and security types. 64/128 WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, and AES are supported.

Select the Wireless SSID for network [1] you want to connect to.

Push the RIGHT CURSOR arrow.

Step 4

Type the network password [2]. This is case-sensitive.
note: Do not enter a password if the network does not require one.

Set DHCP Enabled to On [3].

note: Set DHCP Enabled to Off to manually set up the network.

Push F4 To connect after configuring network settings [1].

Wait until the Status changes from DOWN to UP.
