How to Set Up WiFi on an iPad


Instead of paying for an expensive data plan, many smartphone or tablet owners opt to use the device's Wi-Fi capabilities to connect to the Internet. The iPad's Wi-Fi feature lets you connect to wireless networks such as those found in coffee shops or universities. Like many processes on your iPad, setting up Wi-Fi is nearly automatic. Once you have enabled the feature, the iPad begins searching for networks. After configuring a network to work with your iPad, your tablet saves the network's information for future use.

  • Turn on the iPad. The Home screen opens.

  • Tap "Settings." The "Settings" main menu opens.

  • Select "Wi-Fi" in the left column near the top. Wi-Fi options appear in the right column.

  • Slide the "Wi-Fi" power switch to "On." The iPad scans for networks.

  • Tap the network you want to connect to. The keyboard appears.

  • Type the network's password and tap "Connect." The iPad saves the network's settings and connects automatically whenever you are in range.
