I have a new Dell computer that has Intel's 'My WiFi Technology' installed. This is supposed to allow  wireless devices to connect  to the internet via the laptop. To add a device - such as my iPhone  - the program has three options: (1) WiFi Protected Setup PIN configuration, (2) WiFi Protected Setup push button configuration, or (3) manual configuration.

 

My question is two-fold: does my iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1 support either of the first two options, and if so, how.

 

If not, does anybody have an easy way to get the INCREDIBLY long and convoluted password phrase required by My WiFi Technology  into the  iPhone for a manual configuration.


iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

    1. Go to the Intel My Wifi Utility on your laptop
    2. Click Profiles
    3. Click New
    4. Enter a name for the profile (mydell, whatever..)
    5. Enter a new network name for the SSID (again, something like mydell, mylaptop..)
    6. Click the Security tab
    7. Ensure security type is: WPA...
    8. Select the long Wireless Security Password string and press backspace to delete.
    9. Enter a password (8 characters is the minimum I believe,.... such as mydellpassword1, or something)
    10. Click OK
    11. Click Close

     

    1. On your iPhone, go to Settings>General>Network
    2. Select Other and you should see that your mydell is offered as a connection.
    3. Select it and enter the password you created  in step 9 (such as mydellpassword1)

    I've 'upgraded' to IO6, and Settings>General>Network no longer exists. Great response earlier. Can you tweak it for IO6?

     

    Thanks & Regards,
