To connect to the Internet, use a compatible Wi-Fi network.
Step 1: Turn on Wi-Fi
- At the bottom right, select the time.
- Select Not Connected .
Note: If you see your Wi-Fi network name and a signal strength, your Chromebook is already connected to Wi-Fi.
- Turn on Wi-Fi.
- Your Chromebook will automatically look for available networks and show them to you in a list.
Step 2: Pick a network and connect
1. Connect to an open network
Select the Wi-Fi network .
Remember, your information might be visible to other people on this network.
2. Connect to a secure network
Select the secure Wi-Fi network .
Type the network password.
3. Connect to an unlisted network
Administrators may hide networks so only certain people can use them. To connect to an unlisted network:
Select Join other network .
Enter the network information in the box that appears.
Information for this network is automatically saved so you can connect automatically later.
Wi-Fi networks that work with Chromebooks
- Open networks that don’t require a password
- Secure networks that use WEP, Dynamic WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA-Enterprise, or WPA2-Enterprise settings
- We recommend WPA2, as it is more secure than WEP or WPA
- Standards: 802.11 a/b/g/n and 802.11ac for AC-equipped Chromebooks
