The first time you turn on a Toshiba Satellite, it assists you in connecting to your preferred Wi-Fi network. However, you can change your Wi-Fi network at any time, using the same Settings charm available on all Windows 8 laptops. Whether you are at home, at the office, in a hotel or sitting in a coffee shop, you can select a new Wi-Fi network to connect to the Internet, provided of course that you know the network's password.

Step 1

Drag your finger from the right edge of the screen on the Satellite's screen, or move the cursor with the touchpad to the top-right corner and drag it downward.

Step 2

Select the "Settings" charm and then select the "Wi-Fi" icon, which looks like a series of vertical bars. This opens the Networks window.

Step 3

Locate your preferred Wi-Fi network in the list that appears. If you don't see it immediately, wait a few seconds for the laptop to list all available networks in your current location.

Step 4

Select your Wi-Fi network by tapping it on the screen or clicking it with the touchpad. Select "Connect."

Step 5

Type your Wi-Fi password when prompted. Select "Next."
