Windows 7 Wireless Networking Made Easy

Windows 7 also makes major improvements to how the operating system handles wireless networking. The biggest improvement can be found in the wireless networking pop-up menu itself. If you have Windows 7 installed and your computer has wireless Internet you can open the pop-up menu by clicking on the icon on the left of the taskbar. The icon appears as a series of reception bars, like those found on a cell phone. This Icon shows the Range of these wireless networks that are available to the windows PC user.

Windows Wireless Connections

The new pop-up makes it easy to switch wireless networks. All of the wireless networks available will be displayed on the pop-up. The one that you are currently using will be clearly labeled as "Connected" in bold type. To switch networks, click on that network in the pop-up menu and then click the Connect button. If the network is password protected you will have to type in the encryption key. That's it! You're now connected to the new network.

The new wireless networking pop-up menu is so efficient that you'll rarely have to access anything beyond the functionality it provides, but if you do need to change your wireless networking settings you can do so by clicking Open Network and Sharing Center at the bottom of the pop-up menu.

Next, click on Manage wireless 
networks on the left of the Network and Sharing Center window.
The Manage Wireless Networks window will show a list of all wireless networks that are 
saved on your computer. These are networks that you will be able to connect to automatically if they are detected by Windows. You can add a new network by clicking the Add button. You will be asked to enter the network's name, security type, encryption type and security key. Once you have done this you can click Next to save the network to the list. You can also change these settings at any time by right-clicking on a listed network and then clicking Properties from the menu.
