If AirPort is off, click on the AirPort menu at the top of your screen (it’s the icon that looks like a sound wave) and click Turn AirPort On. Once AirPort is on, you can click the AirPort menu to find a network to join. The signal strength of the network is indicated by the number of waves that are black (there can be up to 4).
