WIFi connection

Post by dfsmetsfan »

Rainmeter has not connected to my wifi. Is there a way I can put in both the wifi name and password?

Rainmeter doesn't really need to "connect" to your WiFi. Rainmeter has no concern with, no ability to, connect to your WiFi SSID and security key. That will, or at least should, be done by Windows long before Rainmeter even starts. You connect to your WiFi with Windows, or perhaps (but not terribly likely) some other 3rd party utility that controls your WiFi network adapter, and it's just there for Rainmeter, your browser, etc. to use.

If Rainmeter can't make a connection to the internet, then you don't have access to the internet in Windows. Rainmeter can't help with that, you need to get your connectivity issues in Windows straightened out.
