Check Your Network Equipment (Wi-Fi Connections)

Make sure your network router supports Wi-Fi connections.
If the router does not support Wi-Fi, you will need to use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) that supports 802.11b or 802.11g wireless protocols.
If you have a Wireless Access Point that is 802.11n, you will need to make sure you set it so that it is in mixed mode (accepts 802.11b or 802.11g signals).
If you do not know how to operate or access your network equipment settings, (such as your DSL or Cable router settings), you will need to contact the manufacturer of the equipment directly.
Confirm SSID
Verify the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network.
Since scanning for SSIDs with your system can pick up other wireless networks, make sure you have selected the correct SSID which belongs to your own wireless network.
It is also possible that your WAP has the SSID broadcasting feature turned "Off", which means your system will not pick up the SSID when scanning for available wireless networks.
You will need to either turn "On" the SSID broadcast feature on your WAP, or speak to the administrator of your network to obtain your SSID. See about SSID for more information.

Confirm WEP or WPA Security Key

If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password.
If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.

Clear Any Interference or Obstacles in Order to Strengthen Your Wi-Fi Signal

Try positioning the system closer to the wireless router or WAP to enhance the wireless signal. Also, verify that you do not have any devices which may interfere with a wireless signal. If any such devices are in close proximity, make sure they are shut off to ensure no such interference is present. Such devices include:
Microwave oven
Florescent lighting
Bluetooth wireless devices
2.4 gigahertz cordless phones
High powered audio equipment
Television sets or computer monitors
Electronic insect "zappers"
Any other electronic equipment that may produce Radio Frequency (RF) interference
AOSS (Airstation One-Touch Secure System)
