    Connecting to your Wi-Fi network on an Apple Mac

    Here's all you need to know to connect your macOS computer to your new router.

    Apple Mac Wi-Fi FAQs

    This guide will show you how to connect a macOS computer to a wireless router supplied by Plusnet. You should be able to use it with other wireless routers as long as you know the Wireless Name (SSID) and password of the network you're connecting to.

    You'll find the Wireless name (SSID) and password on a sticker on the bottom or back of your router or on a pull-out tab at the back. If you're connecting to the Internet using one of our routers, the SSID will look something like this: PLUSNET-1A2B3C or PlusnetWireless1A2B3C.

    Your wireless password (wireless key or WPA PSK) is made up of a series of numbers and upper and lower case letters.

    1. At the top right side of your screen select the Wireless icon
    1. If Wi-Fi is switched off, toggle the switch to turn this on (otherwise go to step 3)
    2. You'll see a list of networks you can connect to. Select your router's Wireless name (it'll start with Plusnet).
    1. You'll be asked for the password. This is the Wireless key (or WPA-PSK key) shown on the bottom of your router. Enter the key and select Join.

    Having problems with this step?

    • Your wireless key is case sensitive, watch out for upper and lower case letters
    • Watch out for 0, that's a number zero rather than a letter O
    • If you're on MAC OS X 10.4 or below you'll also need to choose a Wireless Security type - select WPA Personal
    1. You're now connected to your wireless network. Open your web browser to start browsing!

    If you want to check your connection, the wireless icon at the top right side of your screen shows what's going on. The bars on the icon indicate the signal strength. Selecting the wireless icon will show the name of the network you're currently connected to.
