name. Hey I'm here. Here's my network name. Be aware that many modern wireless networks actually have that functionality turned off because a lot of network administrators tried to protect their wireless networks from exploitation by turning off SSID broadcast. Is it a perfect security mechanism? No, but it does kind of obscure that wireless network to make it harder to find for hackers. But it also makes it harder to find end users as well. By turning off the SSID broadcast and you will not see it in the list of wireless networks here. So if I wanted to connect one of these broadcastingnetworks all I would have to do is click on it this list and provide the necessary security parameters.We note here that it says secured so I know more than likely I'm going to have to provide a passphrase to connect to either of these networks. But what do you do if the network you want to connect do isn't listed here because it's not broadcasting its network name. In this situation instead of using the wireless icon in the notification area you're instead going to have to go into control paneland go into network and sharing center and manually configure the wireless network connection. Network and Sharing Center 2:23-2:32 Let's go ahead and do that. We'll go to our Windows icon right click and then we will click on control panel. We'll go to network and internet and then go to the network and sharing center. Set Up a New Connection to the Wireless Network 2:33-8:58 We want to use this option right here. Set up a new connection or network. Click this option. Now we have to specify what type of connection we want to make. We want this option right here. We'll have to manually connect to a wireless network. The first thing I have to do is type in the

network name.Now in this scenario I'm actually going to just type in the name of one of these broadcastingnetworks. I'm going to use NTI2. So you can use the manually connect option to connect either a broadcasting or non-broadcasting network. It works either way. But if the network we're not broadcasting I'd have to go to my network administrator and find out what the appropriate network name would be that I should enter in this field. Because I would not see it over here in the list of broadcasting networks. Then I have to specify what type of security this wireless network uses. How do you know which option to choose? Once again go talk to your wireless network administrator and see what type of authentication is being used for this particular network. In a modern network it'll probably use either WPA2 personal for a very small organization. For a large organization it may be WPA 2 Enterprise or 8021x. In this situation it is WPA2 personal. So I'm going to select that option. Then I have to select my encryption type.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
