Answers :

In your operating system go to control panel and follow the prompts of the network setup wizard ( select wireless setup) and follow the steps of the wizard. But you better have a wireless network type card in your laptop.. Usually there is a little switch on the unit soemwhere that displays an orange or blue light that is the network card.
