2. Open Wireless Properties tag, and set SSID to CertExams, and channel to 11 from the drop down box.

Notes: An Access Point, at the minimum requires that SSID is set. Channel is selected automatically. However, you have the option to change the channel. The IP address and subnet mask on the Access Point are optional. Wifi access points need not have an IP address, any more than wired switches and hubs do. However a large number do, as they also act as DHCP servers and network gateways.
