      • Wi-Fi is often faster than a cellular data network. Wi-Fi networks, however, cover limited areas. iPad can join AirPort and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hotspots around the world. When iPad is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon Wi-Fi symbol in the status bar at the top of the screen shows the connection strength. The more bars you see, the better the connection.
      • To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range: From the Home screen, choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
      • Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge, and some require a fee. For Wi-Fi networks requiring a fee, in most cases you can open Safari to see a webpage that will allow you to sign up for service.

      For information on configuring Wi-Fi settings, see the Wi-Fi section of the iPad User's Guide.

      Cellular data networks*

      • Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.
      • You can tell that iPad is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see 3G symbolEdge symbol, or Cellular symbol in the status bar at the top of the screen.
      • If you're outside your carrier's network, you may be able to use a cellular data network from another carrier. Roaming charges may apply.

      Additional Information

      * Cellular data requires iPad Wi-Fi + 3G and an activated cellular data plan.

  • Troubleshoot a Wi-Fi® connection on a BlackBerry® PlayBook

    • To troubleshoot a Wi-Fi® connection on a BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, please try the following actions:

      • On the status bar, tap the Wi-Fi indicator and verify that the switch is set to On

      • The connection might have timed out. Try connecting again

      • The minimum Wi-Fi password length allowed on the BlackBerry PlayBook is 8 characters. Anything number less then 8 will prevent the connect button from being active

      • The BlackBerry PlayBook™ might be too far away from the wireless access point or wireless router to connect. Move the BlackBerry PlayBook closer and try connecting again

      • Verify that the BlackBerry PlayBook is in a Wi-Fi coverage area. If connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are able to connect. If connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, contact the enterprise network administrator or an employee at the hotspot

      • Verify that the time on the BlackBerry PlayBook is synchronised with the network time. If the times are different, it could prevent the BlackBerry PlayBook from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires a certificate to be installed on the BlackBerry PlayBook and the certificate has an expiry date)

      • If the Wi-Fi network doesn't appear in the list of available networks, the network might be hidden. If the network name is known, try connecting to it manually

      • Verify that the options for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out what options to use, for a home network, refer to the information that came with the home wireless router; for an enterprise Wi-Fi network, contact the enterprise network administrator; for a public hotspot, refer to any information provided for the hotspot or contact an employee at the hotspot who might have details about how to connect

      • If the Wi-Fi network was manually switched and does not work, try manually switching to another Wi-Fi network

      • When using the Push Button Setup method, verify that the access point uses Wi-Fi Protected Setup™, and that it has been set to send its profile. Verify that another device is not also attempting to connect at the same time, and that not more than one access point within range is in this mode. For more information, see the information that came with the wireless router

      • The wireless router may need to be reset. Refer to the user manual for the wireless router. If connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, contact the enterprise network administrator or an employee at the hotspot

      • If using PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST or EAP-TTLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, verify that the root certificate has been installed for the certificate authority server that created the certificate for the authentication server. The certificate must be transferred to the BlackBerry PlayBook before it can connect to the network. For more information, contact the network administrator.

      • If using EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, verify that the authentication certificate has been added to the BlackBerry PlayBook. The certificate must be transferred to the BlackBerry PlayBook before it can connect to the network. For more information, contact the network administrator

      • If any kind of MAC filtering/whitelisting is enabled on the Wi-Fi network, ensure that PlayBook MAC address has been added to the whitelist. MAC address can be obtained from: Options -> About -> Network Information

      • If using a hotspot that requires username and password or credit card information to provide Internet access, go toKB26582
      Please see the Additional Information section for more advanced troubleshooting steps.

      If the Wi-Fi network is hidden, select this check box. Hidden networks don't appear in the list of available networks.

      Security Type

      Set the security type that the Wi-Fi network uses.

      Security Sub Type

      If you're connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network, set the security subtype that the Wi-Fi network uses.

      VPN Profiles

      To use a VPN Profile when connecting to this network, select the profile you want to use. For more information, see the Security section of the help.

      Automatically Obtain IP Address

      Clear this check box if you need to manually specify an IP address for your tablet. When you clear this check box, additional options appear. To find out what information to enter, talk to your administrator.

      Enable IPv6

      Set whether the network uses the IPv6 protocol.

      Use HTTP Proxy

      Select this check box if you want to connect to a proxy server. When you select this check box, additional options appear. To find out what options to use, see the information provided for the proxy server.

      Allow inter-access point handover

      If the network spans multiple access points, set whether your tablet should remain connected when you move from one access point to another.

      CA Certificate

      If necessary, set the root certificate that your tablet should use to verify that it's connecting to the correct Wi-Fi network. If the network requires a certificate, you need to transfer it to your tablet before you can connect. For more information, talk to your administrator.

      Client Certificate

      If necessary, set the authentication certificate that your tablet should use to connect to the Wi-Fi network. If the network requires a certificate, you need to transfer it to your tablet before you can connect. For more information, talk to your administrator.

  • Blackberry Playbook - I can't connect to a Wi-Fi network

    • Try one of the following actions:

      • On the status bar, tap  and verify that the switch is set to On.
      • The connection might have timed out. Try connecting again.
      • Your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet might be too far away from the wireless access point or wireless router to connect. Move your tablet closer and try connecting again.
      • Verify that you're in a Wi-Fi® coverage area. If you're connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are able to connect. If you're connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at the hotspot.
      • Verify that the time on your tablet is synchronised with the network time. If the times are different, it could prevent your tablet from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires you to have a certificate on your tablet and the certificate has an expiration date).
      • If the Wi-Fi network doesn't appear in the list of available networks, the network might be hidden. If you know the network name, try connecting to it manually.
      • Verify that the options for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out what options to use, for a home network, refer to the information that came with your router; for an enterprise Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; for a public hotspot, refer to any information provided for the hotspot or talk to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about how to connect.
      • If you switched Wi-Fi networks manually, try switching to another Wi-Fi network.
      • If you are using the Push Button Setup method, verify that the access point uses Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ and that it has been set to send its profile. Verify that another device is not also attempting to connect at the same time, and that not more than one access point within range is in this mode. For more information, see the information that came with your router.
      • If you use PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST or EAP-TTLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, verify that you have installed the root certificate for the certificate authority server that created the certificate for the authentication server. The certificate must be transferred to your tablet before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your administrator.
      • If you use EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, verify that you have added your authentication certificate to your tablet. The certificate must be transferred to your tablet before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your administrator.
      • To view details about your tablet and the network you're connected to that might help with advanced troubleshooting, on the status bar, tap  > Wi-Fi. In the lower-left corner, tap .

    • About

      Welcome to Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry smartphone support blog and the newest edition to the Inside BlackBerry blog family!

      You’ve probably seen us (or our work) around in spaces such as the BlackBerry Support Community Forums@BlackBerryHelp on Twitter, and the Official BlackBerry® Channel on YouTube™. We’ve loved being engaged with the community through these channels (and will continue to do so!) and hope we have helped many of you out along way.

      Through this support blog we feel we can add a little extra to the community by sharing knowledge and tips… before you even have to ask!

      What this blog is about

      We’ve assembled some of our best technical support experts to provide tips and tricks, go in depth on features and show you how it all works.

      But we know this blog isn’t just about us and our perspectives – it’s about YOU and what you need to know to get the most out of your BlackBerry smartphone. Be sure to join in the conversation and get connected with the great information being shared online!

      What this blog isn’t about

      We’re excited to continue to contribute to the conversation, but that said, this isn’t the place to discuss topics like unreleased products, financial and forward-looking statements, service outages or carrier matters. Besides, these are matters where our topic experts aren’t, well, the experts.

      Let us know what’s working and what’s not. See our Comments Policy, and you can also suggest a topicyou’d like to see discussed.
