Open the Settings app.

It’s found in the apps drawer, but you’ll also find a shortcut in the quick actions drawer.

Choose Wi-Fi or Wireless & Networks.

Don’t touch the Master Control icon, which turns the Wi-Fi radio on or off; touch the Wi-Fi text on the left side of the Settings app screen.

You see a list of Wi-Fi networks. In the figure, the Imperial Wambooli network is currently connected.

Choose a wireless network from the list.

When no wireless networks are shown, you’re sort of out of luck regarding Wi-Fi access from your current location.

If prompted, type the network password.

Putting a check mark in the box by the Show Password option makes it easier to type a long, complex network password.

Touch the Connect button.

You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.

When the phone is connected, you see the Wi-Fi status icon atop the touchscreen, looking similar to the icon shown. This icon indicates that the phone’s Wi-Fi is on — connected and communicating with a Wi-Fi network.
