Before you try to connect to a WiFi spot, make sure you have your WLAN adapter ON. Some notebooks have buttons on sides, other's somewhere on the top of the keyboard. Find it and turn it ON in case it's turned off.

Lool at the taksbar and find the WLAN icon, if the your WLAN is on and there's is a WiFi spot in your reach, you should see an icon similar to mine. Click it.

Now you should be able to see all the WiFi spots in your reach.

The number of green bars represents the strength of the signal. More green bars, means better signal.

Look for your or the WiFi spot you can connect to click it and click Connect.

Check the Connect automatically box if you want your notebook to connect automatically the next time you're in the reach of this WiFi spot.
