How do I set up a wireless network with my Samsung Galaxy Portal smart phone?

When you are in range of a wireless local area network (WLAN), your Samsung Galaxy Portal (GT-I5700) can detect and connect to it, which will allow you to make calls, send data over the Internet and browse the web.

  • Activate and connect to a WLAN
  1. From the Home screen, open the application list.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Tap Wireless controls.
  4. Tap Wi-Fi.
  5. Your phone detects and indicates the presence of available WLAN networks.
  6. Select Wi-Fi settings.
  7. Select a network under Wi-Fi networks.
  8. Enter a password for the WLAN and select Done.
  9. Select Connect.
  10. Select a web-based menu to connect to online services via WLAN.
  • Add a WLAN (Hidden AP)
  1. From the Home screen, open the application list.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Tap Wireless controls.
  4. Tap Wi-Fi settings.
  5. Tap Add Wi-Fi network.
  6. Enter the SSID for the network and select the security type.
  7. Set the security settings depending on the selected security type.
  8. When you have finished, select Save.

NOTE: An active WLAN running in the background will consume battery power. To preserve battery power, activate the WLAN only when needed.

Your smart phone uses non-harmonised frequency and is intended for use in all European countries. The WLAN can be operated in the EU without restriction indoors, but cannot be operated outdoors in France.
