This is an investigation video about the user experience of turning on and using WiFi. I found that some steps may not be necessary and others may be able to be eliminated all together. Below I have outlined a few thoughts.
1. When you click on your preferred network, it would be nice if there was a space to enter the network password in the same space as the network name. It would just get rid of the extra step of moving the mouse down to the new screen that always opens up.
2. The WiFi icon turns black when you have internet connection. It would be nice if it turned a bright color, possibly green or blue, when internet is connected. This would make it very clear to tell if the internet is connected or not.
3. If the internet is not connecting, it would be nice to have a message pop right where you click on the network telling you it's not connected and why. Otherwise, you have to open up your internet browser and when it doesn't load, you then get a message on the screen. That's a much longer process.
4. When your laptop is closed, it would be really convenient if there was a light that lit up when there was internet available. This would just be a luxury, but it would be nice. It's just a cool idea, but I don't think it is necessary.
5. If the internet isn't connecting, you have to go down through the steps to open up "System Preferences" so that you can troubleshoot the problem. If a problem does come up, it would be nice if that automatically opened up.
