Windlows 8.1 problem logging onto password protected wireless networks
Posted on 2013-10-30
This is a follow-up to a previous question. I was unable to log onto a password protected wireless network after I had upgraded a tablet to Windows 8.1. Normally, when logging onto a password protected wireless network, one gets a screen to add the password. With Windows 8.1, there was no opportunity to enter a password, and so the tablet could not connect. I finally solved the problem, after applying various suggested fixes, by connecting manually, which does give one the opportunity to add the password.
Here's my question? Is this how Windows 8.1 works when trying to connect to a password protected network; that one has to create the connection manually, or is there some setting in 8.1 that I have not set up correctly.
Thanks for your help
