Profiles provide an easy way to categorize different personal area Wi-Fi network environments. For example, a profile for work may be used to connect to IEEE 802.11g WEP security-based Wi-Fi work printers. In the home environment, an alternative profile could be used to connect to your personal WPA based devices.
To create a profile, open the Intel® My WiFi Technology (Intel® MWT) Utility. Select the Profile button. You can choose to add a new profile by selecting New button. Select OK to save.
The following options will be available to tailor the new profile:
General Settings: Selection of profile name and Network ID.
Security Settings: Selection for security type for your profile
Sharing Settings: Selection for blocking device access to Internet-connected sharing or network bridges connected to notebook. To share the Internet connection from the notebook to connected devices, filter network traffic can be set to disabled.
Advanced Settings: Provides the ability to modify wireless channel settings.
