How to connect your Chromebook to Wi-Fi
Before you can connect to Wi-Fi, you’ll have to enable it. Here’s how to do it:
1. In the bottom-right corner of the screen, click into the area with the Wi-Fi symbol (if it isn’t enabled, you’ll see an outline without an available signal inside).
2. Click “Not connected” – you’ll see the Wi-Fi button turn on and it will automatically search for local networks.
3. If you’ve already established a local Wi-Fi connection, it should automatically connect. Otherwise, select one from the available list and enter the password, or click the Wi-Fi button with the plus sign (next to the place where you would toggle the Wi-Fi on or off) to join another network.
4. Enter the SSID of the network you want to join, then enter the password, if necessary.
If you’re having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, you may need to restart your Chromebook, or think about getting a new router if your connection is weak. Google Wi-Fi offers one of the best connections for a standard home, and will go perfectly with your Chromebook.
