    • Hey jasminemj28. More info is needed. No software needs to be downloaded, the laptop has to have it's wireless adapter turned on (usually with a switch somewhere on the case or with an Fkey+number combination if it is turned off)
    Do you have Internet access at home and also have a wireless router?
    Are you trying to connect to a wi-fi hotspot like at a library,cafe, etc?

    You can also add a temporary USB network device to connect you to the internet. The USB will have to be installed. Sometimes doing that "wakes up" the Laptop's Wi-fi.
