This article will teach you how to connect to a wireless (Wi-Fi) network using a computer or device running on the following operating system:
- Windows XP
Things you’ll need:
- A wireless router/modem, such as the ones we sell.
- Your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password (WPA / WPA2 / WEP). *Check your modem’s manual if you are not sure how to set this up.
- A computer, a laptop or a device with a Wi-Fi adapter. These adapters may be built-in or may need to be bought and installed. USB Wi-Fi adapters are also available from all good computer stores.
Connecting to Wi-Fi with Windows XP:
1. Open the Start menu in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen, and then select the Connect To option from the right-hand column.
2. Select Wireless Network Connection.
3. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network from the list of available connections and click the Connect button.
4. You’ll be asked to enter your Network key, which is your wireless password (WPA / WPA2 / WEP). Type it in, and then click OK. Your computer should remember your password for you from now on.
