  • Once you have checked the required boxes, click Run and allow the program to run.
  • After the program has finished, a log named Result.txt will be opened. Copy and paste this log into your topic.
Step 2: Running the Wireless Test

Next we need you to run our Wireless Test. To do so, please follow these instructions.

  • First of all, please download the Wireless Test to your Desktop.
