Connect to Your Wireless Network
If you have a wireless access point and your computer has built-in wireless networking capabilities, you can connect to the wireless access point to access your network. If your wireless access point is connected to the Internet, then connecting to the wireless network gives your computer Internet access, as well.

Most wireless networks are protected with a security key, which is a kind of password. You need to know the key before attempting to connect. However, after you have connected to the network once, Windows remembers the password and connects again automatically whenever the network comes within range.
