While it is recommended to connect all systems to Ethernet for network access and uploading diagnostic reports to Service Center Remote, it may be more convenient to connect systems to a wireless access point. This is a pretty straight forward process and only needs to be done once per MUD and per network.
- Boot the system into Bootable Diagnostics
- After the UI loads, right click on the outside of the UI, in the black desktop area
- Select Networking > Configure Networking
- From there, an application called WicD Network Settings will open up. Locate the desired network connection and click the Properties button
- By default the authentication standard is set to the typical WPA1/WPA2 passphrase standard. So you should be able to enter the network password into the "Key" field and click OK.
- Depending on your network, you may need to edit these settings to meet your needs.
- Now click Connect on the network and you should connect straight away.
The network configuration is saved to the MUD and can be found at the following directory:
PC-Doctor Service Center 14(F:)\pcdoctor\sc_lin\network
Now, whenever you boot into Service Center Bootable Diagnostics, if the system has a wireless NIC, you will automatically connect to the network.
