At first, things aren’t automatic when it comes to Wi-Fi connections. As soon as you try to access something on the Internet — a website, your e-mail, a Google map, or whatever — your tablet scours the surrounding airwaves for Wi-Fi network signals. If you’ve never connected to a Wi-Fi network or if you’re in an area that doesn’t have any Wi-Fi networks you’ve used in the past, you see the Select a Wi-Fi Network dialog (If you don’t see the Select a Wi-Fi Network dialog, you can still connect to a wireless network)

To connect to a commercial Wi-Fi operation — such as those you find in airports, hotels, and convention centers — you almost always have to take one more step. In most cases, the network prompts you for your name and credit card data so you can be charged for accessing the network. If you’re not prompted right away, you will be as soon as you try to access a website or check your e-mail. Type your information and then enjoy the Internet in all its Wi-Fi glory.

  • HOW TO CONNECT IPOD TO NETWORK? www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.c om
  • Connecting iPad to a Wi-Fi Network As you see a bit later in this chapter, the cellular-enabled iPad or iPad mini automatically connects to cellular networks. At first, things aren’t automatic when it comes to Wi-Fi connections. As soon as you try to access something on the Internet — a website, your e-mail, a Google map, or whatever — your tablet scours the surrounding airwaves for Wi-Fi network signals. If you’ve never connected to a Wi-Fi network or if you’re in an area that doesn’t have any Wi-Fi networks you’ve used in the past, you see the Select a Wi-Fi Network dialog (If you don’t see the Select a Wi-Fi Network dialog, you can still connect to a wireless network) www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Connecting iPad to a Wi-Fi Network If you’re just starting out on the Wi-Fi trail, your iPad or iPad mini displays a list of nearby networks. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com View slide
  • Connecting iPad to a Wi-Fi Network This dialog displays a list of the Wi-Fi networks that are within range. For each network, you get the following three tidbits of data: Network name. This is the name that the administrator has assigned to the network. If you’re in a coffee shop or similar public hotspot and you want to use that network, look for the name (or a variation thereof) of the shop. Password-protection. If a Wi-Fi network displays a lock icon, it means the network is protected by a password and you need to know that password to make the connection. Signal strength. This icon gives you a rough idea of how strong the wireless signals are. The stronger the signal (the more bars you see, the better the signal), the more likely you are to get a fast and reliable connection.www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com View slide
  • Making your first iPad connection Follow these steps to connect to a Wi-Fi network: 1.Tap the network you want to use. If the network is protected by a password, your iPad or iPad mini prompts you to type it. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com If the Wi-Fi network is secured with a password, you type it in this screen. 2.Use the keyboard to type the password. 3.Tap Join. The tablet connects to the network and adds the Wi-Fi network signal strength icon to the status bar.
  • Making your first iPad connection To connect to a commercial Wi-Fi operation — such as those you find in airports, hotels, and convention centers — you almost always have to take one more step. In most cases, the network prompts you for your name and credit card data so you can be charged for accessing the network. If you’re not prompted right away, you will be as soon as you try to access a website or check your e-mail. Type your information and then enjoy the Internet in all its Wi-Fi glory. CAUTION! Because the password box shows dots instead of the actual text for added security, this is no place to demonstrate your touchscreen speed-typing prowess. Slow and steady wins the password typing race (or something). www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Connecting to known or hidden networks If the Wi-Fi network is one that you use all of the time, for example, your home or office network the good news is your iPad remembers any network to which you connect. As soon as a known network comes within range, your tablet makes the connection without a peep. Each Wi-Fi network has a name often called the Service Set Identifier, or SSID that identifies the network to Wi-Fi-friendly devices, such as your iPad. By default, most Wi-Fi networks broadcast the network name so you can see and connect to it. However, some Wi-Fi networks disable network name broadcasting as a security precaution. The idea here is that if an unauthorized user can’t see the network, he or she can’t attempt to connect to it. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Connecting to known or hidden networks You can still connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network by manually entering the connection settings. You need to know the network name, its security and encryption types, and the password. To do so, follow these steps: 1.On the Home screen, tap Settings to open the Settings screen. 2.Tap Wi-Fi. You see the Wi-Fi Networks screen. 3.Tap Other. The Other Network screen appears. 4.Type the network name in the Name text box. 5.Tap Security to open the Security screen.www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Connecting to known or hidden networks 6.Tap the type of security used by the Wi-Fi network: WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, or None. If you’re not sure, try WPA2, which is the most common type for home networks. 7.Tap Other Network to return to the Other Network screen. If you chose WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA Enterprise, or WPA2 Enterprise, your iPad or iPad mini prompts you to type the password. 8.Use the keyboard to type the password. 9.Tap Join. The tablet connects to the network and adds the Wi- Fi network signal strength icon to the status bar. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com

  • Stopping incessant Wi-Fi network prompts The Select a Wi-Fi Network dialog is a handy convenience if you’re not sure whether a Wi-Fi network is available. However, as you move around town, you may find that dialog popping up all over the place as new Wi-Fi networks come within range. One solution is to wear your finger down to the bone with all of the constant tapping of the Cancel button, but there’s a better way: just tell your iPad to shut up already with the Wi-Fi prompting. Here’s how: 1.On the Home screen, tap Settings. The Settings screen appears. 2.Tap Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi screen appears. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Stopping incessant Wi-Fi network prompts 3.Tap the Ask to Join Networks switch to the Off position. Your tablet no longer prompts you with nearby networks. Whew! www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com Toggle the Ask to Join Networks switch to Off to put a gag on network prompts.
  • Stopping incessant Wi-Fi network prompts Okay, I hear you ask, if I’m no longer seeing the prompts, how do I connect to a Wi-Fi network if I don’t even know it’s there? That’s a good question, and here’s a good answer: 1.On the Home screen, tap Settings to open the Settings app. 2.Tap Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi Networks screen appears and the Choose a Network list shows you the available Wi-Fi networks. 3.Tap the network you want to use. If the network is protected by a password, your iPad prompts you to type it. 4.Use the keyboard to type the password. 5.Tap Join. The tablet connects to the network and adds the Wi- Fi network signal strength icon to the status bar. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Turning off the Wi-Fi antenna The iPad Wi-Fi antenna is constantly on the lookout for nearby Wi-Fi networks. That’s useful because it means you always have an up-to-date list of networks to check out, but it also takes a toll on the battery. If you know you won’t be using Wi-Fi for a while, you can save some battery juice for more important pursuits by following these steps to turn off the Wi-Fi antenna: 1.On the Home screen, tap Settings to launch the Settings app. 2.Tap Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi Networks screen appears. 3.Tap the Wi-Fi switch to the Off position. Your tablet disconnects from your current.Wi-Fi network and hides the Choose a Network list. When you’re ready to resume your Wi-Fi duties, return to the Wi- Fi Networks screen and tap the Wi-Fi switch to the On position.www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection If you have a Wi-Fi-only iPad or iPad mini, you might think you’re stuck if you’re out and about, need to use the Internet, and there’s no Wi-Fi in sight. If you have an iPhone that’s running iOS 4.3 or later, then you can work around this problem by using a nifty feature called Personal Hotspot, which enables you to configure your iPhone as a kind of Internet hub or gateway device — something like the hotspots that are available in coffee shops and other public areas. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection You can connect your iPad or iPad mini to your iPhone via Wi-Fi and your tablet can then use the iPhone cellular Internet connection to get online. This is often called Internet tethering. This sounds too good to be true, but it’s real — I swear. The downside (you just knew there had to be a downside) is that additional usage charges apply. In the United States, for example, AT&T only offers tethering with its highest price data plan, which costs $50 per month, $20 more than the next lowest price plan (although you also get an extra 2GB of data). Similarly, Sprint’s tethering plan costs an extra $29.99 per month for 5GB of tethering data, while Verizon’s tethering option costs an extra $30 per month but includes unlimited tethering data. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection Your first step down the Personal Hotspot road is to activate the feature on your iPhone. Here’s how it’s done: 1.On the iPhone Home screen, tap Settings to open the Settings app. 2.Tap Personal Hotspot. Your iPhone opens the Personal Hotspot screen. 3.Tap the Personal Hotspot switch to the On position. If you don’t have the Bluetooth antenna turned on, your iPhone asks if you want to turn it on. 4.Tap Wi-Fi and USB Only. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection 5.Personal Hotspot generates a Wi-Fi password automatically. You can set your own by tapping Wi-Fi Password, typing the new password, and then tapping Done. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com When you activate Personal Hotspot, the iPhone generates a password for you.
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection With Personal Hotspot enabled on your iPhone, follow these steps to connect your iPad to it via Wi-Fi: 1.On your tablet, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi to display the list of nearby wireless networks. 2.In the network list, tap the one that has the same name as your iPhone. Your tablet prompts you for the Wi-Fi password. 3.Type the Personal Hotspot Wi-Fi password, and then tap OK. In the status bar, your iPad or iPad mini shows the Personal Hotspot icon, which is two interconnected rings. Your iPhone shows Personal Hotspot: 1 Connection. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection To make a Wi-Fi connection to the iPhone hotspot, display the list of wireless networks and then select your iPhone. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Tethering to an iPhone Internet connection When your iPad is tethered, it shows the Personal Hotspot icon in the status bar. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
  • Working with Cellular Network Connections Connections to a cellular network are automatic and occur behind the scenes. As soon as you switch on your cellular- enabled iPad, it checks for an LTE signal. If it finds one, it connects to the network and displays the LTE (or 4G) icon in the status bar, as well as the connection strength (the more bars, the better). If your current area doesn’t do the LTE thing, your tablet tries to connect to the slower 3G network. If that works, you see the 3G icon in the status bar, as well as the signal strength. If there’s no 3G network within range, your tablet looks for an EDGE network instead. If that works, you see the E icon in the status bar (plus the usual signal strength bars). If none of that works, you see No Signal, so you might as well go home. www.ipadvideo.firstnewsupdate.com
