If you are in a network, you need to have a thing called IP address which is usually assigned by a DHCP server or a wireless access point.If DHCP Server is not available in your case then you need to configure evreything manually.If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.Just search for the WI_FI signal and connect with it.

For manually configuring Wireless Network Setting

Go to control panel and click "network and Sharing Center", click Change Adapter settings" Right Click on the wireless adapter, Select "properties", click on "Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4)".

Select now use the followinf IP address,

Manually fill the IP address : 
                       Subnet mask :
                       Default Gateway: 

Select "Use the following DNS address "

Manually fill Preferred DNS address:
                Alternate DNS address:

For example :                           IP address               : 192.168.0.10
                       Subnet mask               : 255.255.255.0
                       Default Gateway           :192.168.0 1  

                    Preferred DNS address    :218.248.234.117
                     Alternate DNS address   :218.248.136.142

IP address is needed for communications between devices.
subnet mask is needed for identifying your Network Address Node.
Default Gateway is usually your Router or Wi-Fi access point IP Address.

DNS address for resolving domain name(mostly for Internet browsing)

Hope you can connect it now.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Tip

Why can't you connect to the Internet?


First check your TCP/IP address - see my earlier tip on checking you are connected to a network. For most recent systems, (not Linux) open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in the RUN window from the start menu) and type ipconfig /all
you should see your network adapter name and IP address, a subnet mask (don't worry) and a default gateway, also a DNS server IP address. If ANY of these are missing, that's your problem, try repairing or resetting the network adapter. WRITE THEM DOWN. You may have more than one adapter, you need to identify which one is used for the Internet connection.
If they are all there, from the SAME window type "ping" followed by the IP address of your default gateway. If this fails, you have no connection to your internet router, find out why!
If this succeeds, type "ping" again, followed by the IP address of your DNS server. If this fails, type "tracert" and then the IP address of your DNS server. The FIRST address that will be reported is your default gateway; followed by your ISP address; if the only address you see is your default gateway, the link to your ISP  is down, give them  a call. If it succeeds, from the same window type "nslookup"
You will see a chevron prompt, type in the name of the site you want to go to, e.g google.com.
You should then see a reply from your DNS server, and an IP address for your required server. If not, then either your DNS server settings are wrong OR the server does not exist. It will be obvious which it is from the reply you receive. If the DNS settings are wrong, you can change them from the Control Panel, Network, Network adapter, Properties, TCP/IP v4 properties menu; try setting DNS server to 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 and try again.

Try to acquire an address from the router by performing a ipconfig /release command, then ipconfig /renew at the command line. If that doesn't work then you may have to manually enter IP address and DNS address and Default Gateway address in the IP Properties page of your adapter. Could be your present address is using APIPA or Windoze Automatic Private IP Address of 169.254.x.x
