Edited by Thor, Zack, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to connect to a wireless network using Windows 7.

Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing you're going to do is move the cursor into the corner and click on the internet option
    .
    It's represented by four or five bars in the corner next to the time and date.

    Next, we have a selection of wireless networks that we can connect to
    .
    If there is this symbol here with a question mark inside a shield, this means the network is unsecured. You can access it, but other people may be able to watch what you're doing or access your computer. I'm going to connect to the "UTG" network, which we can see at the top.

    Sometimes, there often is confusion between your computer and the network
    .
    In order to fix this we can try troubleshooting problems. So we click on 'Open Network and Sharing Center'. And here we have all of the options that perhaps we'll need. We can set up a new connection or network, connect to a network (which is what we've just done), choose how to share, or we can troubleshoot problems. You'll often need to trouble shoot problems if there is a problem.

    Often, the most common problem is a disconnection or interference, or for some reason the wireless adapter of the computer cannot connect to the wireless network
    .
    What you'll often need to do is repair. When there's a problem there will be a repair option here, and you'll be able to click 'Repair'. This will turn off and on the wireless adapter, reset it, and try again to connect to the internet.
