In order to access the internet, you must be in a location that has internet service, whether that be your home, university, public library, or restaurant. In this lesson, we will learn about the different types of internet service and how to connect to wi-fi when you’re not at home.
There are many types of internet service; some are more reliable and faster than others and some are becoming obsolete such as dial-up. Not all types are available in all areas and not all internet service providers offer all types. Below is a list of the most common types:
1. Click the network icon in the notification area to open the list of available networks. It is generally found in the bottom bar near the right.
2. Click on the network to which you would like to connect. “WSU Secure” has been selected in the image below.
3. Finally, click the Connect button. If the network is security-enabled, you’ll need to enter a security key obtained from the network administrator.
