Creating a new Verizon 9100EM or 9100VM wireless network

The process of creating a wireless home network in Windows 7 can be completed in less than 10 minutes. These simplified directions make the following assumptions:

  • Your Verizon 9100EM or 9100VM router has been installed and you can access the Internet.
  • You have a wireless network adapter installed in the computer you’re connecting to the wireless network. You can use Device Manager if you’re unsure whether you have a wireless adapter installed.


To create your Verizon 9100EM or 9100VM wireless home network in Windows 7:

  1. Click the wireless connection icon (No Connections Icon) in the right Taskbar next to your clock information.

  2. Select the wireless network you want to join when the list of available wireless networks displays.


    Available Networks


  3. Select Connect automatically to automatically connect to this network each time you log in to your computer.

  4. Click Connect to join the selected wireless network. The status will change to “Connected.” [Show Me]



Entering the network security key
  1. Enter your network's security encryption key (WPA2, WPA, or WEP) in the Security key field. Your router was configured by the manufacturer to use WEP encryption and includes the WEP key on a label affixed to the bottom or side of your Verizon 9100EM or 9100VM router.
    • If you have improved your network encryption by upgrading to WPA2 or WPA encryption, enter your updated encryption key.
    • If you have forgotten your network encryption key, you can access your router's configuration utility to find it.

  2. Select Hide characters to replace your entry in the Security Key field with dots to improve security.


  3. Click OK.


  4. Congratulations, your computer is now connected to your wireless network. The next step is to test your new connection.
