    Solving Connection Problems

    • Make sure the wireless receiver on your computer is active. Some computers have an indicator light that shows if it is active or not. If the light is off, your wireless receiver is off. On laptops, this is often controlled by a button or switch. If you are unsure, refer to your computer's documentation.
    • Run Windows Update and make sure you have all important updates and drivers installed.
    • Delete your wireless configuration profile:
      1. Select the wireless network icon () in your taskbar and then select Open Network and Sharing Center.
      2. Select Manage Wireless Networks.
      3. Select each PSU network and select the Remove button.
