I know my radio has to be on the same network as my computer, and I'm trying to find it on my Flex 6300...HELP!  I'm trying to change the WiFi network and I guess I've taken a dumb pill, but where can I find the Wifi on SDR?  I have looked everywhere (guess not everywhere)...I've looked at Wifi symbol in bottom right, settings, etc  I'm stumped.  I cannot find it...Of course, if I change the wifi on my computer, then the radio doesn't "see" the computer...I'm in a loop...thanks, John

Your SDR (Flex-6300) doesn't have WiFi, you likely have a wifi adapter plugged in to the Ethernet jack, that needs to be changed outside the SDR.

John, If I understand you correctly, there is no WiFi on the radio or SSDR.   Your 6300 has to be cabled to your home network.  The same as your laptop or computer running SSDR.  If that is done correctly, the radio advertises itself on the network and SSDR will hear it and start to function.  If this is what you have done, you might want to make sure your firewall is off on your computer and see if that helps.

I'm just guessing at what might work based on your comments.
