Locate the wireless signal icon in the lower right of your computer screen and click it.

If you are using a portable computer and see this icon, the wireless card may be deactivated. Make sure that the button intended for wireless connection is activated. You’ll find it in the front of your computer or on the keyboard.

If you see the WPS icon  in this window, it means that your router supports the WPS function. Press the button for this function on your router (often identified by its logo).

If you wish to correct the error message problem, reconfigure your wireless router or contact the router manufacturer’s technical support.

When the connection is established for the first time, select the location of the network that will determine your connection’s security settings. Choose the one that corresponds best to your situation. If you’re at home, for instance, choose “domestic network.”
