If you have turned on Wi-Fi and you still cannot see the network in the list, the network may be hidden. Hidden wireless networks are networks that do not broadcast their network ID (SSID). Some wireless networks are hidden to prevent unwanted guests. If you are trying to connect to a hidden network, you must connect to it manually. To connect manually, you must know the SSID and security type. If you do not already know the SSID and security type, consult with your Internet service provider.
