    Check back a few pages, there is about 10 other threads with the same question.

    Or Google it.

    I'm trying to do the same but the only option I'm getting is to choose a network, and my network is not coming up...tried to input the network manually and still won't work.

    Any ideas?

    Is you router configured to "show SSID"? Also, make sure your router is suing WPA encryption and not WEP, as WEP will not work with recovery.
