Connect to a Wi-Fi network

When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your BlackBerry device saves the network information. The next time you're within range of the saved Wi-Fi network, if Wi-Fi is turned on, your device connects automatically.
  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Wi-Fi.
  3. If the Wi-Fi switch is Off, set it to On.
  4. Tap a network.
  5. If the Wi-Fi Protected Setup screen appears, do one of the following:
    • If you have access to the Wi-Fi router and it uses Wi-Fi Protected Setup, tap Press WPS Button on Router or Enter PIN into router. Complete the instructions on the device screen.
    • If you don't have access to the Wi-Fi router or it doesn't use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, tap Don't use WPS.
  6. If necessary, enter the username or password for the Wi-Fi network.
  7. Tap Connect.
Tip: The next time you want to connect to a saved Wi-Fi network, if the network is within range of your device, swipe down from the top of the home screen and tap The Wi-Fi icon.

Manually connect to a Wi-Fi network

If you want to connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network, or you're having trouble automatically connecting, you can connect manually.

  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Wi-Fi > Add network.
  3. In the SSID field, enter the name of the network.
  4. Select the network's security type and specify any additional information. For what information you should specify, you can speak to your administrator or the person who manages the Wi-Fi network.
  5. Tap Connect.
