Connect to Wi-Fi Network in Windows 11

Wi-Fi is a wireless local area network (WLAN) technology and standard that uses high-frequency radio waves to provide wireless Internet and network connections to your Windows device.

When you set up and connect to a Wi-Fi network for the first time, Windows will automatically add a profile for the Wi-Fi network. The profile contains the SSID (network name), security key (password), and security type information used to connect to this Wi-Fi network.

Windows will usually automatically connect to networks in this priority order:

  • Ethernet
  • Wi‑Fi (wireless)
  • Mobile broadband (cellular)

Windows will automatically connect to your Wi-Fi network profiles based on a priority order when the Wi-Fi network is in range, and an Ethernet connection is not available.

If you check Connect automatically while connecting to a Wi-Fi network, that Wi-Fi profile will be placed at the top of the priority order list. If you have multiple Wi-Fi network connection profiles, you can change the priority order so the network profile you prefer will be the first one to use instead when in range.

This tutorial will show you how to connect to a Wi-Fi network in Windows 11.
