Connect additional wireless devices

TELUS wireless home networking enables a wireless device to access the Internet without cables from virtually anywhere in your home. Follow the instructions below to configure your wireless device to connect to your TELUS wireless home network.

Before you begin

Your wireless home network should already be set up. You will need your wireless network name (SSID) and network security key that should be located on your primary computer as TELUS_Wireless_Settings.html on your computer's desktop or in the folder Documents (Vista) or Documents (XP).

Please refer to wireless network setup if you don't have this info, or haven't yet configured your wireless gateway.

Once you have your wireless network name and network security key, follow the steps below on your wireless device.
