Network and Internet settings can be accessed from the Windows Control Panel. The Control Panel allows you to customize and configure your computer, change settings for your installed programs and services, and access other features related to your operating system.
To access the Network and Internet settings through the Windows Control Panel, you will first need to open the Control Panel by right-clicking the Start button of your device and selecting “Control Panel”. If your Control Panel appears as a list of categories rather than a list of items, select “Network and Internet”.
Once you have clicked on “Network and Internet,” a selection of options related to network and internet settings should appear. From there, you can choose which setting you would like to adjust. This can range from viewing active networks, managing Wi-Fi settings, customizing your proxy server settings, configuring advanced networking settings, connecting to a new network, or simply checking your current connection status.
If you are using a wireless connection, you will want to click the “Manage Wireless Networks” option. Doing so should present you with a dialog box containing all the saved wireless networks on your PC. From this dialog box, you can change the properties of the existing wireless connections, delete them, or add a new wireless connection.
If you would like to further customize your wireless connection, you can click on “Change Adapter Settings” under Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel. This will bring up a window where you can view, modify, and add network connections. From this window, you can manage LAN connections as well as wireless networks. Clicking on any of these connections will give you the option to change its properties.
Now that you’ve opened up the properties of your chosen connection, you can change various settings such as the type of connection (wired, wireless, etc.), security settings, power settings, IP addresses, and the connection name. You can also manage advanced settings such as IP routing, IP filtering, network metrics, and packet filters.
You can also access your Windows internet settings through the Control Panel. To do this, click on “Internet Options” in Network and Internet Settings. From here, you will be able to set a homepage, configure your connection settings, manage your privacy settings, make changes to your security settings, and more.
By using the Windows Control Panel, you can easily access and change your network and internet settings. Doing so may require making minor tweaks to your connection settings, but overall it’s a straightforward process. Always remember to save any changes you make, and be sure to check the help section of your router or modem if you’re still having difficulty with your network or internet connection.
