    1. Enter the SSID
    2. Enter a brief description for the network (optional)
    3. Enter the security type of the network
    4. Depending on the security type selected, the form will expand to reveal corresponding security credential input fields.  Enter security information accordingly.
  4. Click Save and Continue
  5. Select Agents to connect to and monitor the network (Step 2):
    1. Click on the Agents that will monitor the network.  Selected agents will appear in the list to the right
      Note: If you select an agent that is assigned to another WiFi network, the agent will be automatically reassigned to WiFi network you are currently configuring.
