Configuring a network using the HP Network Assistant

Once you have a good internet connection established you can start using the HP Network Assistant to complete your wireless netowrk.


Configure the network with wires first.


If you haven't already, connect your DSL modem or cable modem to the phone or cable TV jack on the wall and determine that you have an internet connection. If you do not have an internet connection you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for setting this up before you can connect to the internet.
