Q: I’m having problems connecting over WiFi. What should I do?

- Check that your Wifi router/modem is working correctly – try it with another Wifi device (ex: friend’s laptop).

Make sure that you are relatively close to the modem/router when make your first connection. Later you can test to see how far away you can still get a wifi signal.

- Try connecting to a friend's WiFi access point (one that uses a different modem) to see if reacts the same way. If it connects, then you know that you should set your WiFi router/modem with similar parameters.

- Turn off the Wifi then turn it back on again. Go to Apps > Settings and flip the Wi-Fi switch to OFF. Wait until the right side of the screen says wifi off, then reflip the switch to ON and wait a moment. Your WiFi access point should show up as an item below this.

-If you have to enter a password (an security code of type WEP or WPA) be very careful that you do not confuse a 1 and I (one and letter “I”), a 0 and O (zero and letter “O”), or U and V. These are common mistakes.
