My daughter's chromebook from school needs to connect to wi-fi. We have wi-fi at home. When I open up my home computer, I never need to put in a password....I just click onto my internet icon. By the way, I have netgear for my wi-fi.

Also, my husband's laptop just uses an icon to get into the internet. We never put in a password.
But now that my daughter brought home a chromebook from school, we all of a sudden need a password. The teacher at school just told us to "connect to your wi-fi"...........she made it sound easy.
In the chromebook, it shows that the wi-fi is turned on, and it even shows our particular wi-fi name on the list, but when we click on our private wi-fi, it says it wants a password.
