Cannot Connect to a Wi-Fi Netwok

If you cannot connect to your personal Wi-Fi network (such as a Home Wi-Fi network), verify your Wi-Fi router is connected to the internet (please contact the device manufacturer or your internet service provider for instructions).

Loose or disconnected Ethernet cables, DSL or cable connections, telephone cords, USB cables, or power cables can cause network or internet connection issues.

Try to reboot your router or modem:

  1. Check all the connections to and from your router and, if available, your high-speed modem.

  2. Turn off the Wi-Fi router and your high-speed modem. If your router or modem does not have a power switch, disconnect the power cord from the back. Wait several minutes, and then turn on the router or modem (or reconnect the power cord).

  3. On the mobile device's Wi-Fi settings menu, touch the slider Curseur On to turn Wi-Fi off Curseur off, and then touch it again to turn it back on.

  4. On the mobile device, attempt to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

If you are not able to connect after rebooting your router or modem, attempt to connect with another Wi-Fi device. If neither device can connect, please contact the device manufacturer or your internet service provider.

Note: In rare instances, a router may be set to allow a limited number of simultaneous connections. Some networks have MAC filters in place to prevent unwanted connections. For support on configuring and using your wireless router, please contact the device manufacturer or your internet service provider.
