Lenovo Self-Help: How to connect to a wireless network


Connecting your Laptop PC to a wireless network
gives you the advantage of being able to move around inside your house, while you remain
connected to the internet. In this video, let us see how to connect your Lenovo PC to
an existing wireless network. Before we begin, make sure your Wireless Router
is turned on, and is connected to the internet. Power up your PC and click the Wi-Fi icon
in the System Tray near the clock. You should now see the list of Wireless networks available
for you to connect. Select your wireless network from the list. If your network is not listed,
it is possible that it is a hidden network. If so, scroll down to select Hidden Network.
Check “Connect automatically” if you want the laptop to automatically connect to this
network when it is available. This will ensure that you need not repeat this process every
time. Click Connect. You will be prompted to enter the Network Name or SSID in the next
screen. If your wireless network is secured and has a security key or a PIN, you may be
prompted to enter that. Type the Security Key and click Next. The first time you connect
to a Wireless Network, you may be prompted to choose if you want to enable sharing. If
it is a Home or Personal network, you may choose to Share files and folders or even
printers. But if it is a hot spot or public network, Do not enable sharing. That’s it,
your system should now be connected to the wireless network. If you are connecting to
a hot spot or a wireless network in an airport etc., you may have to complete the authentication
formalities using a web browser. But if it is your home network, you should be online.
Thank you.
