Windows 7: Can't connect to the internet

Bottom right corner of the Dell screen (next to my sound icon) is the "Network" icon. Click it and open the "Network and Sharing Center".

Need to know if there are any network connections already set up?

All right. We can add the Dell to your home network ... or we can limit access for now to just Internet Access? Up to you ..

If you want to add to your home network, then do "Create a new network connection" and select "Home".

If you just want to give Internet access, do you have a screen that looks like this:

At the moment we'd just like to give him internet access. Can't say I'm actually sure what a home network is tbh...

Also, I just see a dot after 'a screen that looks like this:'
Should I be seeing something else?

Kinda thought that might be the case ...

On the upper left of the Network and Sharing Center are links like this:

The network you want to manage is NETGEAR

Click on the manage link and look for the "Security" tab for the "Wireless Network Properties"

Select the WPA2-Personal (that is the same as WPA2-PSK) and type in your password that your are too ashamed of to share with me

Then find the Wireless signal page already posted and try to connect.


BTW, that dot was a spacer at the bottom of the page. You were supposed to see that.

Right, I'm not sure if we're doing this right.
On the upper left we are clicking on 'manage wireless networks'. It then comes up with 'manage wireless networks that use (Wireless Network Connection). Windows tries to connect to these networks in the order listed below.'
But there is nothing listed below!

So when you click on the Network icon in the taksbar, you see a screen like this:

but there are no wireless networks in the list?

When we do that we see several networks, including the one we want to join.
Also, when you say 'you see a screen like this:' am I supposed to see a picture or something..?

I am posting pictures with in my posts here at Seven Forums. For example a picture of my wireless Network and Sharing Center. You are not seeing any images?

If you can see the network you want to connect to then right click on it and try to connect. When (if) you are asked for your password, type it in.
