Connect to Wi-Fi on Android Tablets

To browse the internet, send messages, or download apps the tablet must be connected to a Wi-Fi network. All Wi-Fi networks come with a network ID and a password. In order to join a Wi- Fi network, you must have the name and password. If you travel to a different location, such as a family member’s home you can join their network by asking for the name of the Wi- Fi network and the password.
