Go to [Wireless] - [Wireless Security] tab.


• The Interface for Userfriendly firmware is as follows:

Select [Wireless Config]-[Basic] tab to see details of security setting.


If AOSS or WPS security is setup, refer to AOSS or WPS tab for SSID and Key information

5-Tap the SSID from the Step1 under "Choose a Network...".
