6D does not connect on second wifi

I managed to connect my 6D to my laptop over my girlfriend's wifi the other day. When I came home I wanted to do the same on my own wifi.

Menu -> Wi-Fi function

There I only have Exit/Confirm set/Error details
to choose from

I choose Confirm set and I can see the Basic settings and the name of my girlfriend's wifi, the name of my laptop and her SSID.

But these settings are only for the connection I established in her apartment.
Now I want to do the same here at home. But I can't find a way to add another connection or to change the one I have.

Help!

If you go through "connect to laptop" again it doesn't offer you the option to create another connection?

But that never shows up!

Or which is the first menu choice I should make to get that option?

Beneath the Wifi Enable/Disable line there should be a WiFi Functions line.  IF you click that it takes you to the screen with all the Icons, right?

It should.

But that does not happen.

I get the "Exit", "Confirm set" and "Error report"

No screen with icons.

But I remember that screen from the moment when I set that first wifi connection.

The first connection is registered but I cannot delete it or change it.

And I cannot find a way to add another connection.

It worked now.

I didn't realize that I should press Exit to make it work.

"Exit" didn't seem to be the proper button, so I never tried until now.
