Help! How Do I Connect My Android Tablet To The Internet?

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android

William writes:

My Android¬† tablet has no “connect to internet” Icon on screen,nor can find anything that says “W-Fi”. My router indicates wireless in on. Any suggestions??

You won’t find a “connect to Internet” icon on your homescreen. You’ll need to open up “Settings” on your tablet.¬†


Now look for “connections” or “network connections” on your device. The label will vary depending on the device.

Make sure Wireless is turned on and that your tablet is not in airplane mode, which turns off the wireless connection. Under network connections, you’ll find the available WiFi networks. Tap on the name of your network.


If your network is secured, you’ll need to enter the password for your router.


Once you enter your password, it should authenticate pretty quickly and then show your network as connected.


Then you should be connected to the Internet.

    Is there any other purpose to “Airplane Mode”? I never knew what that mode was for.

      Tablets and phones usually create interference with plane’s board equipment. The “Airplane mode” means that your device will close any possible application that will affect the board equipment, including the wireless connection.
