    Networks don't show up in the genie unless I run diagnostics but I can't select any networks from there. I try the push to connect and it doesn't work.

    Now push to connect works for some reason. Go figure. Thanks for the help.

    Try putting in the SSID and passphrase manually in the genie. Sometimes they can be quirky, but once the profile is saved, shouldn't have any more problem connecting.

    Thank you everyone for the help. I really appreciate it. I don't know exactly how my issue was resolved, it must have been a combination of inputs from everyone that helped me. If I can do anything for any of you just let me know. Thanks again.
