Do you need to connect to a Wi-Fi network? Are you connected but unable to access web pages? These tips will help get connected and help you resolve the most common Wi-Fi issues.

If you have a strong Wi-Fi signal, but still can't access the Internet, verify the Wi-Fi network you are using.
To Reset your Wifi Connection:
Tap Settings > General, then tap Reset > Reset Network Settings.
When the device restarts, try to locate and join the Wi-Fi network again.
