Connect to Wi-Fi on Your Galaxy Tab A (New)

Wi-Fi is a wireless connectivity feature that lets you connect Wi-Fi enabled devices to share information or to connect to the internet. Learn how to Use the Bluetooth Feature.

Connect to Wi-Fi

Let's get started by connecting to a Wi-Fi network. You'll be up and running in no time. Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Wi-Fi.  

  3. Touch the slider to turn Wi-Fi ON.

  4. Touch your Wi-Fi network.   

  5. If required, enter the password and then touch CONNECT.  

    Note: If a password is not required, you can simply touch CONNECT.

  6. After Wi-Fi is connected, the Wi-Fi indicator will appear in the status bar.

    Note: If you are not connected to your Wi-Fi, make sure you check your Wi-Fi password and try again.

Turn Wi-Fi On or Off

If you're in an area with good cellular reception and you don't want to use Wi-Fi, you can turn it off. Read on to learn how to turn it on and off anytime you want.

  1. To access your Wi-Fi, open the Notification Panel by swiping down from the top of your screen.  

  2. To turn Wi-Fi on or off, touch the Wi-Fi icon.  

    Note: After your Wi-Fi has been connected, your tablet will automatically scan and connect to any previously connected network.
