      Your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet can connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi®. Public Wi-Fi networks are available in many public places, such as libraries, airports, hotels, coffee shops and so on.

      1. On the Status bar, tap  > Wi-Fi.
      2. Tap the network you want to connect to. To only see networks that don't require a password, in theNetworks drop-down list, select Open Networks.
      3. If necessary, type the network password.
      4. Tap Connect.
