Find the Wireless Network Connection window in Win 8.0

by Smarthub1 / March 1, 2014 8:12 PM PST

I have bought a Samsung Smarthub.

It refuses to accept the username& p/w printed on its label as valid.

Went to Samsung manual and it suggested a solution using the wireless connection window. I cant find this and I am going loopy trying. For the record I am on my second hub as I exchanged it for exactly this reason.

I could rant about this but the gadget is so promising I just want it to work. Help!

When I run the installation disc the PC fails to connect to the Smarthub. There is a record of this problem on a web site see link below.

I cannot find a window which resembles the screen shots at the beginning of the solution suggested.

I am using windows 8.0 on a new acer laptop with core i3 processor 6G ram. Wifi via BT homehub.

I have a NAS and a wifi stereo on the same network.

From reading about your problem I can see from the specs, for your device it is made for the ios (Apple) or Android system. And please correct me if I am wrong but that is why a Windows computer can not see it because it is a completely different system.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
