Partial connections are due to a missing WiFi password.
The Network Card can find the Access Point, but a WiFi Password is necessary to communicate.
In your Start Menu, there is a place called Network Connections. Go there and open the wireless Connection you have. It will look similar to this on the Support Tab.
Notice the Default Gateway number and put that number just like it looks into an internet browser address bar.
So for my computer here, I'd put 192.168.1.254 in an Internet Explorer addres bar. then hit enter.
This brings you to the settings for your access point, (router, network), control panel. It may be password protected with username and password requirements, if so, enter them; If not, be shure to set something, this is a strong security risk. Look online for your default User and Password for the device you are connecting to.
Again, it's important to change the credentials to something other than the default.
In the browser when you get into the control panel, it will have tabs for various things.
Look for Network, then in there Wireless, or WiFi.
In this page you should see a choice of what kind of encryption and an encryption password or phrase, with options for four different passwords.
Make the encryption setting here, and your Network Connection match.
Make your Network Connection password and the password you see on the control panel match.
Be shure to hit "Save Settings" in the control panel in the web browser, then exit the browser.
On your WiFi Network connection, choose Connect to network and pick your wireless network to connect to, and click connect. If all the settings are right, it will connect and access the network/internet.
Any complications, you can message me. This walkthrough is good if everything works as planned, if anything dosn't work, there are many diagnostic choices to clear the way through.
