How do I check if my PC is set up for wireless broadband?

To check if your computer has a wireless card installed, click on Start, Control Panel, Network Connections.

If you cannot see 'Wireless Network Connection' mentioned, you will need to purchase and install a wireless card.

If you can see 'Wireless Network Connection', simply right-click on the icon and then on View Available Wireless Networks. This will give you a list of access points within range.

Highlight your chosen access point then click Connect. If the connection has been secured you will need to enter your WEP key. Once the correct WEP key has been entered and your computer is connected to the wireless network, your computer should automatically connect whenever the access point is within range.
