- Check the SSID(12-digit Mac address or 14-digit alphanumeric characters) and the encryption key (13-digit alphanumeric characters) of a wireless main unit, and write them down.
The encryption key is alphanumeric characters combined alphabets (a to k, m to n, p, r to y) except “l”, “o”, “q”, “z” and numbers (0 to 9).
This example is WZR-HP-G300NH.
There are two SSIDs and Encryption keys for 802.11a and 802.11g connection on WZR-HP-AG300H.
- Turn on the iPhone 4 and tap [Settings] at the Home Screen.
Press the Home button located underneath the screen frame to go back to this screen.
- Tap [General].
- Tap [Keyboard].
- Tap [International Keyboards].
- Check "English" is available.
Tap [Keyboard] - [General] - [Settings] to go back to the screen.
- Tap [Wi-Fi].
- Make sure the "Wi-Fi" button is ON.
Wait for a while until the SSID searching is completed.
If the "OFF" button appears, a wireless feature is disabled.
Tap the button to enable a wireless connection.
- Tap the SSID from the Step1 under "Choose a Network...".
If the SSID cannot be found, scroll the list to check it.
A key symbol appears because the encryption key is set.
- The screen to enter an encryption key (password) appears.
Make sure "Join" is displayed on the keyboard.
- Tap the encryption key written down from step 1, then tap the [Join] button.
The encryption key is case-sensitive.
To enter upper-case characters, tap the “↑” button (equivalent to the shift key), then enter the value.
- When the icon indicating that a wireless connection complete is displayed on the upper left of the screen, the setup is complete.
- Press the Home button and tap [Safari] to connect to the internet.
When the internet screen appears, the setup is complete.
