wireless access point

I'm trying to get my wireless network to function again. I'm in the, "The Wireless Network Setup Wizard". I think I'm on the second, or third screen. It says:
Your network settings are saved to the flash drive. Now follow these steps:
1. Plug the flash drive into to your wireless access point.
My question: What are they referring to? What is a, "wireless access point", and where is it?

Thanks! You folks are awesome!

It appears you may have been using the wizard to setup your router. Your wireless router may not have a USB port.

So get to Manage Wireless Networks (or Wireless Settings tab on the wireless card) and set up the settings you need to access your wireless router. USB not needed for this. Also, the exact method depends on the operating system you are using, but my outline above should work.

If you somehow lost the wireless settings in your wireless router, plug your computer into it with an ethernet wired and set it up again. Many routers have 192.168.1.1 as the web setup page.

This problem was fixed by an expert who happened to come to my house, so I did not get the opportunity to try the methods mentioned here. Now I would be trying to fix somehting that is not broken. I'm sorry!

I don't think you need to do anything - you said it was fixed. I was just wishing you well, that's all
