In Windows, how can I see what wireless networks are available?

Windows 8.x and 7

While viewing your desktop, click the network icon located on the right side of your Taskbar. Depending on your network connection, the network icon will either appear as a computer monitor and network cable, or as five ascending bars.

Note: In Windows 7, if you don't see the network icon, click the up arrow to see all icons available in the notification area.

Under "Wi-Fi" (Windows 8.x) or "Wireless Network Connection" (Windows 7), you will see a list of the wireless networks in your area. (In Windows 7, you may have to click the down arrow next to "Wireless Network Connection" to expand this section.)

Windows Vista

From the Start menu, click Connect to. A window listing the wireless networks in your area will appear.

Windows XP

Important: As of April 8, 2014, Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP with security updates. To ensure the highest security standards, the UITS Support Center no longer registers Windows XP devices to the IU network. UITS strongly recommends that you look into the options for replacing or upgrading your Windows XP computers for full compatibility with IU systems. See About end of life for Windows XP.

  1. From the Start menu, select either Control Panel, or Settings and then Control Panel.

  2. Double-click the Network Connections icon.

    Note: If instead of Network Connections, you see Network and Internet Connections, click Switch to Classic View in the upper left corner.

  3. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon, and then select View Available Wireless Networks.
