If you’re having trouble connecting to your wireless network, first try updating the driver for your wireless device. See the Locating drivers thread for instructions about finding drivers.

Make sure your wireless router is properly set up. See these instructions about setting up wireless routers.

If you’re still having trouble connecting, make sure that wireless connections are turned on:

1. On the Start screen, type Control Panel, click the Apps filter, and then tap or click Control Panel.

2. In the left pane, tap or click Wireless.

3. In the right pane, verify that Airplane mode is off and that Wireless devices are on.

Then, check the current connections:

1. Open the Settings charm by swiping in from the right or pointing the mouse to the lower-right corner of the screen.

2. Tap or click the networking icon, indicated by either a monitor with a network cable (for a wired connection) or a set of five stepped bars (for a wireless connection).

3. Under the list of wireless networks, choose your network, and enter any credentials needed to connect to the network.
