You must enter the SSID into the 802.11b Wavelan setup slip in the appropriate
worksite in Owner's Info.

The channel is only necessary if you are running an ad-hoc type of network.
The network settings from your base station should tell you. If in doubt, try
infrastructure, if that doesn't work change the Newton's setup to ad-hoc and
set the channel to the same as the base station.
