    My old wireless was working fine, I simply updated my internet to faster speed and so I updated my router and modem hardware. I've consulted online manuals but cannot find the locations I'm told to go to enter new WPA-PSk codes for the new router. The wired internet is working fine and the XBOX & my phone shows a listing for my new router however I get an error message when entering the passcode from the router - my guess is that my desktop still has the old router info - I just can't find where to enter the new.

    Delete the wireless profile and scan for your network. When you try to connect you will be prompted for the WPA passphrase.

    If that doesn't work disable encryption on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.
