    You should be able to click the little wireless icon in the system tray at the bottom right corner of your screen to view available wireless networks. Just click one to select it; Windows will prompt you for a passphrase if the network requires one.

    Don't see the icon? Your computer might not have Wi-Fi hardware. Laptops should have the hardware, but you probably won't have Wi-Fi support if you're using a desktop computer.

    Check your computer's specifications or your computer manufacturer's website to see if it supports WiFi.

    If this doesn't help you, we'll need more information to troubleshoot this.

    Hello, also you would need a router, and a wireless adapter of any kind.  If it is a laptop, you already have a wireless adapter.

    Start by telling us what operating system you use, Windows XP/Vista/7?
