If you open the quick start guide there are pictures explaining how.

tl/dr is click the icon in the lower right hand corner and select a network to connect to.

Hello Jeff,
I clicked the icon in the lower right hand corner, but no wireless network appeared.
Sounds the built in wireless card in this laptop is not detected.
I use Dell Inspiron 1150 , don't know the built in wireless card. some one said " Dell likes Broadcom."
Thanks

The wireless card is there but I miss the pci-id for it to search the database.
Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -A2 0280
will show just a bit more info. I think you might only miss a piece of firmware, easily to solve.

Your wireless device requires closed source drivers. You'll need to install the broadcom drivers.

Been awhile since I've owned this hardware myself, but any guide you find for Ubuntu 16.04 will apply to Bodhi 4.5

While being online you need to run this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall firmware-b43-installer
That should do the trick.
