Windows Connect Now

Windows Connect Now makes it easier to set up a wireless network at home or work.

The first time you connect to a compatible Wi‑Fi router, Windows will walk you through all the necessary setup steps—including naming your network and turning on the router's security features. (To find a compatible model, look for the "Compatible with Windows 7" logo, or visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center.)

Windows Connect Now also frees you from having to remember your network credentials when you connect a new PC. Just push the Wi‑Fi Protected Setup button on your router and it will automatically send the network settings to your computer.
