How to Use a Dish Network WiFi


Using a Wi-Fi connection supplied by Dish Network is a fast and easy way to get your laptop or desktop computer on the Internet. Connect via Dish Network Wi-Fi and you can access the web anywhere in the house. This can save you the hassle of buying lengthy Ethernet cords that limit you to within a certain range of your cable modem or router.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish Network Wi-Fi
  • Make sure your computer has a wireless Internet card, either built in or as a plug-in adapter. This allows your computer to pick up the signals being sent and received by your wireless Dish Network router and connect to the Internet. If you have a laptop purchased in the last few years it will most likely have a wireless card inside. Usually only newer desktop computers come with these cards installed.

  • Click on the "Start" menu on the lower-left side of your Windows computer's desktop. Select the "Network" option from the list that appears.

  • Right-click on the icon that represents your wireless networking card. Select the option that reads "View All Wireless Networks."

  • Select your Dish Network Wi-Fi network from the list of available wireless networks. Click on its name and select the "Connect" button from the lower right-hand corner of the window.

  • Open your web browser and type in any web address you can think of. If the page loads successfully, you are connected to your Dish Network Wi-Fi.
