Q: I just purchased a laptop. How do I find an Internet access using WiFi? When I try to go to a site, it asks me for an access code.

    The wifi connections you are seeing are for your neighbors home internet connections. They have been password protected to prevent other people from stealing their internet connection.

    To have your own wireless connection an your place you’ll need:

    1. Internet Service from an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
    2. A router with wireless network support
    3. All this properly setup.

    If you already have a wireless router at your place you’ll need to consult your manual to see how to set the wireless password.
