The preliminary step is to activate your WiFi from the Internet Access panel displayed on the bottom-right pane of the taskbar. To get this done just check whether the name of your WiFi panel is appearing on the Internet access panel and that the connection of your laptop with the WiFi is in “Connection” mode.
If the option of “Connect” is getting displayed then it means your laptop has not been in pairing mode with your WiFi router. So, all you need is to simply click on the “Connect” button to cause your laptop to get connected with your WiFi router.

Step 4 - Now plug the cables into the WiFi router and turn it on.
