3If you use the SP1 or SP2 versions of Windows XP, we recommend upgrading your computer to Windows XP SP3 version.

4Activate the Wi-Fi function on your computer.
As a general rule, the Wi-Fi function is activated by pressing a button designated to that function or by pressing a combination of keys on the keyboard. If needed, check your computer user guide.

If your computer is not equipped with the Wi-Fi function, you have to install a Wi-Fi adapter.
