    How do I connect a Mac OS X computer to my wireless network?

    • Answer
    • Before you can connect a Mac to your wireless network, you need to know your wireless network name and wireless password. If you do not know what these details are, see What is my wireless network name and wireless password?

      If you know your wireless network name and wireless password, you can connect a Mac OS X computer to your wireless network by following the steps below:

      1. In the top-right corner of your Mac's screen, click the AirPort icon and select Turn AirPort On, if available.
        The AirPort icon is a wireless symbol.
      2. From the list of available networks that are within range, select your wireless network name.
      3. Tick the box labelled Show password. Also, tick the box that says Remember Password.
      4. Enter the wireless password and click OK.
        Note: This is case sensitive and must exactly match the wireless password set up on your wireless router.
      5. Click the AirPort icon again to see if a successful connection has been made to the wireless network.

      Your Mac should now be connected to the internet wirelessly. To test your connection open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and try to access a website, such aswww.talktalk.co.uk.
