Trouble shooting a Wireless Connection

If you are having difficulty in connecting to your Wi-Fi network, here are a few things to try

    • NOTE: the wireless key or security code is case sensitve
    • You should be able to find it on the back of your Wi-Fi hub contact whoever set it up for you if not
    • You are looking for the wireless key not the administrator password
    • Below if the Security setting shows WEP or WEP64 you will need to change the security setting on your HUB to WPA2-PSK.  The X10/30 does not work with WEP.   For help changing settings on your hub please contact the organisation that supplied it.
  • Give The X10/30 a moment to connect and it will display the Network Info screen, confirm with “OK" and you should be connected.
