Modified on Tue, 13 Feb 2024 at 04:08 AM

Connect using WiFi:

  • Move your mouse pointer to the top right of your screen to bring up the "Charm Bar".
  • Select "Settings".
  • Select either "Network" or "Available", depending on what option you see.
  • Select your wireless network name from the list.
  • Tick "Connect automatically" and then click "Connect".
  • Enter your W-Fi password.

NB: you can find your wireless network name and password on the sticker on the back of your router.
  • Finally, select whether or not you want to turn on sharing.
  • You should now see a Connected status next to your wireless network name.

Connect with an ethernet cable:

If your computer is next to your router, you may want to set up a wired connection. Connecting with an Ethernet cable can offer a slightly faster and more stable connection.

  • Turn off your computer.
  • Plug one end of the yellow ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the side or back of your computer. 
  • Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into any of the yellow ports on the back of your router. You should hear a click as it locks into place.
  • Restart your computer and open your web browser. You should now be connected to the internet.
