Wi-Fi 802.11b/g certiÀ ed routers.

This device does not support the WPS-
PIN method.
If your Wi-Fi router supports WPS and
the WPS-PBC method but fails to connect

method (see 'Scenario 2: Connect to a
non-WPS router' on page 10 ) .
Enable SSID broadcast on the Wi-Fi router.
Keep away from potential sources of
interference which may affect Wi-Fi signal,

Make sure that the SSID name of your
home router consists of alphanumeric
characters, with no space or special
characters like %/#/* inserted.

' Philips_Fidelio XXXX ' in the setting menu,
do not use special characters or symbols.
For some new types of Wi-Fi routers, a
network name (SSID) may be created
automatically when you use WPS for
connection. Always change the default
network name (SSID) to a simple one that
consists of alphanumerical characters, and
also change the Wi-Fi security mode to
secure your network.
