Accessing the Wireless Network


The laptop must have a wireless card to access the wireless network.


Because the wireless connection is not secure, laptop users must check a dialog box acknowledging that fact before they can use it.

  • Turn the laptop on.

  • Look for the icons on the taskbar at the bottom right hand side of the laptop.

  • Find the icon that looks like two computers, with a mouse-overtext box saying “No wireless connection.”

  • Click the icon.

  • A window appears that says “View available wireless connections.”

  • cfnet should be highlighted but but before the laptop can connect the user must check the warning that says: “Allow me to connect even though it is not secure.”  

  • Hit enter or OK and the laptop should be connected.
