Connect to a WiFi

Nokia Lumia: Connect to web with Wi-Fi

Connecting to a WiFi network is a handy way of accessing the internet. When out and about, you can connect to WiFi networks in public places, such as a library or internet café.

Your phone periodically checks for and notifies you of available connections. The notification appears briefly at the top of the screen. To manage your WiFi connections, select the notification.

On the start screen, swipe down from the top of the screen, and tap active WiFi connection icon.

  1. Switch WiFi networking to Ontoggle on icon.
  2. Select the connection you want to use.

    Your WiFi connection is active when active WiFi connection icon is shown on the status bar at the top of the screen.

    WiFi positioning improves positioning accuracy when satellite signals are not available, especially when you are indoors or between tall buildings.

  1. Switch WiFi networking to Offtoggle off icon.

    Tip: Your phone connects back to the WiFi network automatically. To change the automatic reconnection time, or to switch WiFi back on manually, tap Turn WiFi back on and the option you want.
