Connect Your Samsung PC to a network

Windows 10 makes it easy to connect and manage your networks. You can connect wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable. Pick a method you are most comfortable with, and let’s get started.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Quickly connect to a wireless network

Connecting wirelessly to Wi-Fi is one of the most convenient methods to get access to the world wide web.

From Settings, click Network & Internet, and then click Wi-Fi on the sidebar. If the Wi-Fi is off, click the switch to turn it on. Click on Show available networks, and then click on your desired network. Click Connect, and input a password if needed.

Manually connect to a wireless network

If you prefer manually connecting to a network, you can do so through the Network and Sharing Center.

From Settings, click Network & Internet, and then click Wi-Fi on the sidebar. Click Network & Sharing Center, and then click Set up a new connection or network. Click Manually connect to a wireless network, and then click Next. Fill out the information, and then click Next.

Connect via Ethernet cable

Wi-Fi is great, but it's not always reliable, like when there's a bad storm. To make sure you always have a stable connection, connect your PC to the internet using an Ethernet cable.

First, connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your PC. Then, connect the other end to an active Ethernet port in the wall or an internet router.

To verify the connection is successful, open Settings, click Network & Internet, and then click Ethernet from the sidebar. You will see the connection status of your network.

Note: For best results, turn off your Wi-Fi. Your PC prioritizes wireless connections.

Remove wireless network

In Windows 10, removing a wireless network is the same as forgetting a network on a Galaxy phone.

From Settings, click Network & Internet, and then click Wi-Fi from the sidebar. Next, click Manage known networks, and then select the network name you want to remove. Click Forget, and you're all set.
