The WiFi network you want to connect to is in the top white box (for example "NETGEAR79"). The WiFi password is directly below that (for example "vanillagient432") 
  2. If the "Netgear Genie" pops up, select "No, I want to configure the Internet connection myself."

  5. Click on “Wireless”
  6. Enter "SAMi" for for the SSID. You need to enter this in two places, one for the 2.4Ghz Network and one for the 5Ghz Network.
  7. "None" should be selected for Security Options. Optionally you can select "WPA2-PSK [AES]" under Security Options and enter a passphrase.

The router will now restart and you are done.
