 Wireless Networks in Windows Vista

Setting up a wireless network will be necessary if you'd like to be able to access the internet via your laptop or desktop anywhere in your home. This type of network allows you to connect to the internet  using your computer whether you're hanging out in your  kitchen or in the bedroom. If you have Windows Vista and need help setting up your wireless network, keep reading. We'll show you how below.
 
Vista is a Windows Operating System that many people believe to be rather intuitive. Connecting Vista to a wireless network is thus relatively easy. Below, you'll find a brief tutorial that will have your wireless network up and running in no time. If you have a decent amount of computer skills and you are able to follow simple directions, you should be just fine.

The first thing that you will need to do is go to Network and Sharing Center." After you've found it, you will need to choose "Connect to Network." Press "Show All" and then press the Refresh button. Look for active network connections. If you happen to come across one, choose one and then press "connect." Be sure to choose the "Start this connection automatically" button. Doing so will allow your computer to automatically connect to the network you selected, each time you log into your computer.
 
It may be necessary to enter in your settings manually if you are unable to find a network. This is simple enough to do. First, choose the "Set up a connection or network" found in the "Connect to network" window. Next choose "Manually connect to a wireless network" and click on the "Next" button.
 
You will then need to type in your network name. This could be a number of things, including your router name. Decide on the security type and whatever encryption you plan on using on your network. Enter in your security key and press the "Start this connection automatically" option. Press "Next" and then "Connect To."  That's it. You're finished. Your wireless network should now be set up in Vista. The process is simple enough. Read the directions carefully and then re-read them until you feel comfortable implementing the steps. After awhile, it will become old hat.
