  2. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the AerPad Mini. Connect the other end to your Mac or PC and configure your Network Preferences or TCP/IP settings manually as described in the Quick Start Guide and then log into the AeroPad Mini as described.
  3. Click on the Basic Settings link and configure the SSID box with the network name and enable encryption if you have any setup. If you are unsure you can click on the Site Survey button that is on the right. When you do this a box will come up and you will see your ESSID/Network Name. You will also see Security to the right, it will say OPEN or WEP. If it says WEP then this means that you have security enabled on your router/base station. You will have to enter that key as well otherwise the AeroPad Mini will not work. After you get the SSID and WEP information from the Site Survey box you will then close this box. Now you will be back on the Basic Settings page, you will then see a box called SSID, you will type in your SSID that you got from the Site Survey box. Also if you have encryption enabled on your network you will also want to enable this by choosing ether 64/128-Bit or WPA encryption.
