How to find a wireless network? There are different ways to find WiFi connection, depending on the device you are using. You can only connect if your device is equipped with WiFi capabilities or if it comes with an adapter that can communicate using radio waves.
For Windows users, follow these steps:
1. Go to Start menu.
Click on the Connect To button. The window will show a list of radio waves broadcasting within the range of your device’s card.
2. Choose an option from the list.
If you are in a public place, you are likely to see various communication devices listed. They are from the surrounding businesses.
3. Click on the Connect button.
Your computer will attempt to connect. If the device is unsecured, your computer will warn you. This is usually seen if you are using a device that does not require a password to be connected. You may click the Connect Anyway option to continue.
4. Enter the password.
If you are prompted to do so, then you need to enter the device’s password. Most devices these days are secured, i.e. password protected. If you do not know its password, you cannot get in, unless you know how to hack it.
For Mac users, follow these steps:
1. Click on the Airport Menu Bar.
Apple Computer makes sure that their users can easily find a wireless network wherever they are. Through the said menu bar, you can see which devices are available that you can connect with. Some of them are secure while others are not.
2. Choose the device.
When you see different devices using the Airport Menu Bar, choose the device that you wish to be connected with. It could be the nearest restaurant or your office’s device.
Select the device and enter password, if you are prompted to do so. Most WiFi owners these days tend to secure their devices by protecting through the use of passwords.
When you wish to connect through your mobile device, you just need to go to your phone’s Settings menu. In here you can find which WiFi is available within your range. Just like Mac and Windows, you may still be prompted to enter a password.
