Question about Computers & Internet
I've just bought a Chromebook which connects to the internet via wifi at work and internet cafes but not at my home. My main computer is an iMac and this connects perfectly well. I've been in touch with an Google & they advise that it could well be my security settings. They say they need to be WPA2. Currently it's set at "WPA or WEP". The other options are - "WPA only", "WEP only" or "No security". As I don't really understand all this stuff I'm afraid of changing something and then not being able to get the internet on my iMac either. Is it just a simple case of change my router's security settings to "WPA only"? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
That is weird. Does the Chromebook see the wireless router? I just looked on Google's Chromebook website and it says that the Chromebook works with any security setting. What type of Wifi router do you have at home?
This is the Google page talking about Wifi connection issues.

If you are trying to connect through a router then you need to access the routers settings and change the security settings for the wireless.
You need to find out the make and model of the router and go to the makers website to find out how to get in to the settings or look in the router manual if you have it.
You will have to have a Network / Lan cable connected between your laptop and a port on the router.
Usually it just means entering an ip address in to your browser (internet explorer, Firefox ) address bar.
For example: http://192.168.2.1 or the equivalent for your router and press Enter. Then you should be able to change all the settings you need to.
