How to Setup a Wireless Network Using Setup Wizard

By Bennett Gavrish

With the Wireless Network Setup Wizard, which is included with all PC computers running Windows XP or later, you can configure your own wireless Internet connection. Once you create the initial wireless network settings, Windows will automatically copy the settings to a flash drive; then, you can use the flash drive to easily set up other systems on the wireless network.

  • USB flash drive

Step 1

Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.

Step 6

Choose the drive letter of your USB flash drive and click "Next" again. Windows will now save the network configuration to your flash drive. Click "Finish" to complete the network setup process.
