Transcript:How to Connect an iPad to Wireless

Hi, I'm Pamela French for About.com, and today I'm going to show you how to connect your iPad to wireless.

Find Wireless Networks for iPad

To begin you'll need to get to the the Wi-Fi network, so tap on the Settings app. From here, select the Wi-Fi category to get to the wireless network screen. Once there, the iPad will start looking for Wi-Fi networks that are in range and available to connect to. As these networks start appearing, the iPad will list their network names under the "choose a network" heading.

If you don't see these immediately, don't worry, it can take some time for the iPad to see all the networks available.  

Choose a Wireless Network

When the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to appears on the screen, tap on its name to attempt to join it. If that particular name has a lock to the right of it, you will be asked to enter a wireless encryption password in order to join and connect.

Connect iPad to Wi-Fi Network

Once you've entered the password, the iPad will try and connect. When it does connect, you will be led back to the Wi-Fi settings screens and now there will be a checkmark next to the network you are connected too.

Now you're connected to Wi-Fi and you can use all the apps that require it.
