To connect your Mac to a wireless router you have to:

  • Know the SSID and password of your router. SSID identifies the name of your home WiFi network. Check your manual or other documents together with your product, and follow the instructions on how to configure your router. The password is also needed to access the network but it depends on how you set up your router.


  • When your Mac is on, go to "Applications" folder and click "Internet Connect."


  • Select the "AirPort" tab in the toolbar on top. Click "Turn AirPort on" on the new screen. Wait until all the wireless networks in your area are discovered.


  • Look for "Network" and click its drop-down menu.  Choose the SSID name of your network. If your network is not in the choices, click "Other." Put the password if needed, then click "Connect."
  • In the AirPort section of the Internet Connect window, check the "Show AirPort status menu bar." You will see a pie-slice shaped icon located in the menu bar. Click it, then it will connect to your wireless network.


Another method is:

  • Look for the "Apple" menu at the upper left of the desktop, click it. On the next screen, click "System Preferences" and "Network."


  • Click the "Network Name" drop-down menu and look for the name of the wireless network you wanted to connect to. Type in the password if needed. If your network name is not in the choices, click the "Join Other Network" in the previous "Network Name" screen.


  • Type the network name, then click the "Security" drop-down menu to choose the security type of your wireless network.
  • On the box next to "Password" type in the security key and click "Join."
