How to connect your OS X Mac to a wireless network

How to connect your OS X Mac to a wireless network

Much like everything else about OS X, connecting to a wireless network is painfully easy. But if you’re not familiar w/ OS X, and need to walk someone else through it, the following steps might prove helpful.

    1. When connecting your Mac to a wireless network, one of the first things you’ll want to do is make sure that the AirPort icon is enabled in your Menu bar. If it’s already there, please skip down to Step 5.

    1. Select the Apple Button (very upper left corner of your screen) and chooseSystem Preferences… from the drop-down list. From there, select Network.

    1. Select you AirPort entry, and click the Configure… button.

    1. Make sure the Airport tab is selected from the top menu, and then place a check in the box labelled Show AirPort status in menu bar

    1. Click the AirPort icon in your menu bar, and you should be presented with a list of visible wireless networks. Select the network you want to join.

    1. If the network requires a password, you’ll be prompted to enter it now. If it doesn’t, you should automatically connect.

    1. When you’re connected, the AirPort icon will change from a ‘light grey’ color to a solid black. The number of solid black lines indicates the signal strength (more black bars = stronger signal). That’s it!

Skynet has developed a one-stop-shop that includes amazing customer service, internet, phone and tv. As a consumer, I have learned over the years, you get what you pay for and I highly value customer service and follow-through.

I have been a Skynet customer at home since 2003 and switched my employer to Skynet when I started three years ago.
