Hello, my name is Josiah Rea. I'm going to show you how to connect to Wi-Fi using Windows 7. Here I am in Windows 7 and you'll notice down in my task bar here, the Wi-Fi is empty and it's got this kind of a gold star on it. That means I'm not connected to anything right now. To connect all you have to do is click on it and it will automatically bring up this list of networks that you can connect to. Connect to one, just click on the one that you want and push connect. And it will bring up a little window that it's loading and all and if everything goes correctly, you'll see those bars show up filled without the gold star. Now if that doesn't work right or that doesn't show the networks or something like that, we can go in to a little more depth and make sure that your wireless adapter hasn't been disabled. So click on the same icon again, but instead of clicking on a network, open up the network and sharing center. Up here in the upper right we're going to change the adapter settings and here's the local area connection and that's your hard cable that you've got plugged in to the back of your computer and the wireless network connection, that's the one that we want. Right click on it and make sure that this first option doesn't say enable. It's asking if you want to change it so if it says enable, it means that it's been disabled and usually if I disable this real quick it's going to tell you right there that it's been disabled. So we're going to reenable it. And it automatically reconnects to the last network that I was connected to. So hope you've enjoyed this short video on how to connect to a wireless network using Windows 7. I'm Josiah Rea.
