How to connect laptop to network


Right-click on "My computer", go to Properties, then if the laptop runs Windows7, the screen will show you the info about the Windows version, then under that - System, then below - Settings for Computer Name, Domain and Work Group, with the blue link on the right "Change Settings". Click on that.

(If it runs XP, then instead of this window you'll see a pop-up window with tabs. Choose "Computer name" then.)

A pop-up window with 5 tabs will appear. You need the tab "Computer Name" where you'll see 2 buttons - "Network ID" and "Change...".

The simplest is to go to "Change". Then a new pop-up window will show. There you'll need to give your laptop a name (the name that will show in the network), and then type the name of the domain you want to be in. Then OK it and wait for a little while.

Then you'll need to restart the laptop, and after that it will be in the chosen domain.

Good luck!
