Finally, click on `Connect` button and wait for your wallet to connect.
## Finding a public remote node ## Encontrando un nodo remoto público
First, you will need to find a public remote node to connect to. The website [moneroworld.com](https://moneroworld.com/#nodes) has some great resources for finding nodes. One of the easiest methods would be to use a public remote node run by moneroworld, but they have a tool for finding random nodes too. Primero, necesitarás encontrar un nodo remoto público al cual conectar. El sitio web [moneroworld.com](https://moneroworld.com/#nodes) contiene algunos recursos excelentes para encontrar nodos. Uno de los métodos más fáciles sería usar un nodo remoto público ejecutado por moneroworld, pero también tienen una herramienta para encontrar nodos aleatorios.
If you don't see this pop up, go to `Settings` > `Node` page.
If your remote node requires authentication, you can enter a username in `Daemon username` and a password in `Daemon password`.
If your wallet is already in Advanced mode, you can skip the next step.
If your wallet is not in Advanced mode, you will have to change it to Advanced mode (see next step).
If your wallet is open, you need to close it first. Go to `Settings` > `Wallet` > `Close this wallet`
In `Address` you should fill the address of the remote node that you want to connect to. This address might look like `node.moneroworld.com` or it could look like any IP address.

In `Port` you should fill the port of the remote node. If a remote node is listed as `node.moneroworld.com:18089`, the address is `node.moneroworld.com` and the port is `18089`. The default port is `18081`, but it can vary depending on the node you are connecting to.
On this page select `Remote Node`.
The main menu (`Welcome to Monero` screen) will open. At the bottom left, click on `Change wallet mode` button, and on the next page select `Advanced mode`. Next, open your wallet file again.
