If you press it and hold it down, it will create a secured network with WPA security key. Now on your computer should be compatible with the Secured Easy set up. If it is then you just need to click on the SES on your computer and it will connect to that network automatically.

  10. I had a lot of problems while connecting on my laptop. First I was not able to see my wireless SSID. When I got to see the SSID, I got the same error message. I followed your instructions and connected to the network. I was able to access the Internet for 2 days. After 2 days I got another error of additional log on information… I again followed your steps and got connected. Now it is working fine. I have very old router. I am planning to upgrade the firmware of my router. I hope it will work properly. Thanks for your email support

  11. Thanks for your help. I got it connected. no more need to press configuration button on the access point.

  12. If you don’t know the security key then you will need to check the settings of the router. If you have any computer connected to the router, then open the set up page and check the settings. If your SSID is not secured then it will not ask you for the security key and it will connect you to the network. But if it is secured then you will need to enter the security key.

  13. Thanks for your Guide and free email support
