To connect to a Wi-Fi network on an Android device, follow these steps:
- Open the Settings app: Tap on the gear-shaped icon in the app drawer or swipe down the notification panel and tap the gear icon there.
- In the Settings menu, look for the “Wi-Fi” option and tap on it. This will take you to the Wi-Fi settings page.
- Ensure that the Wi-Fi toggle at the top of the screen is turned on. It should be in the “On” position.
- The device will start scanning for available Wi-Fi networks. Wait for a moment until the list of available networks appears.
- From the list of available networks, tap on the name of the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. If the network is secured, you will need to enter the password to connect. If it’s an open network, you might connect automatically.
- After entering the password (if applicable), tap on the “Connect” button.
- The device will attempt to connect to the selected Wi-Fi network. Once connected, you’ll see a “Connected” status next to the network name in the Wi-Fi settings.
Your Android device is now connected to the Wi-Fi network, and you should be able to use the internet and other network services. The device will automatically connect to this network whenever it’s in range, as long as the Wi-Fi feature is turned on. If you want the device to forget the network or disconnect, you can do so from the same Wi-Fi settings page.
