Profiles
The WG111v3 Smart Wizard uses profiles to store all the settings for a particular wireless
network. There are two special profile names: Default and Profile.
•
Default: The Profile named Default automatically scans for any available network. You
cannot change this profile name.
•
Profile: If you do not enter a name in the Profile Name box, then the name Profile is used to
save your settings. If you do this more than once then you will be asked if you want to replace
the previous settings stored in Profile.
Adding Profiles
You can store multiple profiles and recall the one which matches the network you want to join.
If you use your computer to connect to different wireless networks, you can create a profile for
each wireless network. Then, you can easily load the profile that has all the settings that you need
to join the network you are using at the time.
There are two types of wireless network profiles that you can set up:
•
Access Point (Infrastructure) – Connect to an access point or router with the 802.11
infrastructure mode. For example, this mode is used when computers in a house connect to an
access point that is attached to a router, which lets multiple computers share a single cable or
DSL broadband Internet connection.
•
Computer-to-Computer (Ad Hoc) – Connect directly to another computer with the 802.11
ad hoc mode. For example, Ad Hoc mode is used when two Windows computers are
configured with file and print sharing enabled and you want to exchange files directly between
them.
For more information on 802.11 wireless network modes, see the wireless reference document at:
http://documentation.netgear.com/reference/enu/wireless/index.htm.

Setting up a Computer-to-Computer (Ad Hoc) Profile
The Computer-to-Computer setting uses Ad Hoc mode. Ad Hoc mode is an 802.11 networking
framework in which devices or computers communicate directly with each other, without the use
of an access point. For example, this mode is used when two Windows computers are configured
with file and print sharing enabled and you want to exchange files directly between them.
Note: Ad Hoc mode will not work using DHCP settings. Ad Hoc mode requires either
static IP addresses (such as 192.168.0.1) or the IPX protocol. For instructions on
setting up static IP addresses on a Windows PC, refer to the PC Networking
Tutorial included on the NETGEAR CD.
To create an Ad Hoc mode profile:

Wireless Security
Many networks use wireless security to encrypt wireless data communications. If you try to
connect to a network with wireless security the Smart Wizard detects it. Before you can use that
network you must set up the Wireless Adapter with the same SSID, wireless security, and security
settings as that network. If you do not know what these are, contact the person who set up the
network.
The Wireless Adapter supports the following types of wireless security:
• Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 Pre-Shared Key (WPA2-PSK)
• Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK)
• Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
For more information about wireless security, see the Web link to “Wireless Communications” on
page 33 or the wireless reference document at:
http://documentation.netgear.com/reference/enu/wireless/index.htm
In addition to the wireless security features, networks should use LAN network security features
such as requiring a user name and password to access the shared resources in the network.
The procedures below explain how to configure the wireless encryption settings of your Wireless
Adapter.
Know Your Wireless Network Settings
You will need to know the settings for your wireless network. The form on the next page is set up
so that you can record this information. You can use either of these two methods to keep track of
these settings:
•
Print the form on the next page and fill it out. If you are uncomfortable writing out secure
information, put a “hint” to yourself instead of the actual information. Put the form where it
will be very easy for you to remember, or save two copies and put them in different places.
•
Save the information in a document on your computer. Later you can search for words such as
SSID to locate the information.
