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 Settings > Networks and Connections > Wi-Fi.
  3. If the Wi-Fi switch is off, set it to On.
  4. Tap a network.
    • If the screen requesting a password appears, enter the password for the Wi-Fi network. Tap Connect.
    • If you have access to the Wi-Fi router and you want to use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, tap The Wi-Fi Protected Setup icon. Complete the instructions on the device screen.
  5. 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, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. 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 Settings > Networks and Connections > Wi-Fi > The Add network icon.
  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.
