(Example: Intel PROset Wireless)
The following helps describe one example of a laptop whose wireless is not managed by Windows, but rather by an Intel client software that was installed with the wireless card. This is a typical option with Dell laptops we see.
1. The Intel PROset client can be opened usually via the Start Programs menu. Sometimes also by desktop icons in the System tray, lower right desktop.
2. Above shows Geisel Wireless in range, but with no Profile for it listed yet, and laptop not yet connected. Hit configure (above) to create and save a profile.
3. Click Create, and hit OK.
4. Above, make sure "Wireless Network Name (SSID) is: Geisel Wireless
Then hit Next.
5. Advanced settings not necessary to change
Just click Next on prior screen.
6. Above, Click Next.
7. Above, Click Next.
8. Above, Click OK.
9. This dialogue again. Notice "You are connected." at very top.
Now, Profile is also listed, and can now be connected to, via Connect button.
10. Notice green icon, far lower left, next to Time clock. Green means connected (yellow would mean not).
