How to connect to wifi in windows 7

Let’s set up a wireless connection for the currently most popular Windows 7 operating system. For this, the system must have drivers installed on the Wi-Fi network card. In addition, in laptops, it is disabled by default, so you should look for a button to turn it on. For ASUS, you can try pressing the FN + F2 key combination. For some models, a special button is used with a drawn antenna next to which Wireless may be written. Well, the Wi-Fi access point, I hope you have it configured correctly.

For those who do not want to waste their precious time studying this manual, we offer our paid help.

So, if you have all the drivers installed, let’s start setting up a Wi-Fi connection. To do this, open the start menu and click on the control panel button: 


If your operating system has not been previously configured, then you should see a window as in the picture below. If you do not see it, switch to it with the button to the right of the View: (select “Category”).

Choosing a Sharing Center:

Click on the right to change the adapter parameters:

If there is a computer icon with an upward ladder, then select Connect / Disconnect from the context menu. If there is no icon, then you should install the driver  for your Wi-Fi network card.

Now we look at the list of wireless networks, if there is nothing in it, then the Wi-Fi adapter on the laptop is disabled and we are looking for buttons on the case to turn it on. If the network that you created on the access point is in the list, then click to connect it:

Enter your network access key: 

Key 12345678 was entered exclusively for example.

Click OK and wait for the computer to connect to the wireless network. If an error pops up, try to enter the key again by unchecking the “Hide symbols” checkbox

You can try pressing the WPS button on the router while entering the password, and if you’re lucky, you will be allowed into the network without entering a password. Sometimes this feature is turned off to ensure maximum network security. 

The result will be a ladder in the tray:

If this does not help, you can try to change the encryption algorithms on the Wi-Fi access point. Try also toggling access point modes, for example change 802.11b / g / n to 802.11b / g or vice versa. Well, I hope you didn’t accidentally turn on MAC filtering on it? If all else fails, try connecting other wireless devices to your network. Sometimes there is an individual incompatibility of client devices and Wi-Fi access points in this case, you need to try to update the firmware on the router and the driver of the network card, but this is a completely different story.

If you still haven’t succeeded, here is a description of services and  prices for setting up Wi-Fi networks and routers

PS Sometimes your computer connects to the network, but there is no Internet. In this case, I recommend checking if static IP addresses are configured on the network interface.
