Airport refers to your wireless internet connection. You need to have
wireless internet already
set up at home, or be in a location that has wireless internet to utilize
the airport. Up on the top right of the menu bar you will see the
icon that represents the airport status. Click on the icon to get to
the drop down menu, then select turn airport on. Now the airport
will scan the area looking for
available wireless networks. If you have never logged onto a particular
network before your airport will ask you if you want to join the network.
If a network has no security password, then all you have to do is click
on it and you will be connected. Otherwise, you must type in the password
for the network. If you tell the computer to remember the password,
then you won’t have to type in the password again. Now that you
are connected you will see the bars indicating the strength
of the wireless
signal, much like a cell phone. 5 bars means you have excellent signal
strength so internet browsing should be fast. If you only have a couple
bars, then your internet will be very slow or even non-functional.
In that case I would suggest physically moving closer to the wireless
to increase signal strength.
