Connecting Devices to your Wi-Fi Home Network

  

Connecting your smartphone, tablet, or entertainment/gaming device to your Wi-Fi home network takes just a few steps and gives you access to the Internet and your email without using your data plan.

 

If you need to locate your Wi-Fi settings and have not previously changed the default Wi-Fi settings, locate the sticker on the bottom of your gateway.  The Wi-Fi password is a 10-digit number located in brackets.

 

To connect your device:

  1. Ensure that the Wi-Fi functionality on your device is On.
  2. From your device's wireless connection settings, search for the Wi-Fi network name to which you wish to connect (located on the side or bottom of your gateway).
  3. Enter the Wi-Fi password to connect to the network.

 

Apple iPad

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Select Wi-Fi, and then tap ON.
  3. From Choose a Network, select the Wi-Fi network name to which you wish to connect.
  4. Enter the Wi-Fi password, and select Join. Once connected, a check mark appears next to the network name, and the Wi-Fi icon displays in the status bar.

Samsung Galaxy 

  1. Press the Home key, and then press the Menu key.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Wireless and Network, and then tap Wi-Fi Settings.
  4. If the radio is not enabled, tap Wi-Fi to turn it on.
  5. Press the Menu key and tap Scan.
  6. Select the Wi-Fi network name to which you wish to connect.
  7. Enter the Wi-Fi password and select Connect. 

Amazon Kindle

  1. Press the Home button, and then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to Settings by moving the 5-way controller down, and then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Tap View, next to Wi-Fi Settings, and then select the Wi-Fi network name to which you wish to connect.
  4. Enter the Wi-Fi password. Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard.
  5. Choose Submit.  

Barnes & Noble NOOK

  1. On your Home screen, tap the Wi-Fi icon.
  2. Set the Wi-Fi to ON.
  3. Tap Wi-Fi Hotspot and select the Wi-Fi network name to which you wish to connect.
