Can't find the network that I set up in my network places...

    I set up a wireless network for my WiFi camera, but it doesn’t show up in My
    Network Places. Why?

    I know the network has been set up because when I go to the “Set up a
    wireless network†wizard, it asks me if I want to add new computers or
    devices to the “Abby†network which is the network I set up. I can get my
    camera to connect to the router (FIOS, Actiontec) but not to my computer.

    This is what happens when I turn the camera on WiFi:
    It says "connecting to network", then up comes the wireless menu - I select
    Easy Transfer and it says "Connecting to Abby" (the name I gave the wireless
    setup); finally it says "Failed to connect to Abby". :(

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

    not enough info here and not sure what wireless menu offers Easy
    Transfer but it sounds like something the camera provides and is not
    a part of Windows. you should not have to "set up a wireless
    network" in windows itself since it sounds like you have a wired
    connection. you can possibly connect to the camera from a web
    browser using its IP address with a browser and http://ipaddress but
    you've posted no info on any of the equipment/OS, etc. You'd
    possibly find the answer in the user guide for the camera device or
    the vendor's support site.
