Ensure that you have the appropriate network key code needed to enable you to access a secure Wi-Fi network.


If you are connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network with MAC address restrictions, you will require pre-authorisation for the router. You will need to find your Samsung Jet's MAC (Media Access Control) address. This is a 12-character code which may be needed by the network controller to enable the phone to connect. See Getting the Samsung Jet's MAC address below.


You can get to the Wi-Fi application either via the main menu or using a homescreen Wi-Fi Widget.

  9. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi Netowrk you want to connect to. An options panel appears.
  10. You can press CONNECT to connect to the network or press ADD if you want to add it to a list of preferred networks for easy access later.

  12. The numberpad appears. Type in the network key code and press DONE. You are returned to the previous settings screen. Press SAVE
  13. A list of connections appears. Press the back arrow button
  14. If you initially pressed CONNECT, the phone will connect to the selected Wi-Fi network and a confirmation message will appear. The display now shows the new connection, illustrated by blue dots linking the circles onscreen (Figure 15).

HOW TO CHANGE THE INTERNET SETTINGS IN THE HTC WILDFIRE A3333


Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet access over distances of up to 100 meters (00 feet).

To use Wi-Fi on your phone, you need access to a wireless access point or "hotspot". The availability
and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on the number, infrastructure, and other objects
through which the signal passes.

Turning Wi-Fi on and connecting to a wireless network
From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
Select the Wi-Fi check box to turn Wi-Fi on. The phone then scans for available wireless
networks.

Tap Wi-Fi settings. The network names and security settings of detected Wi-Fi networks
are displayed in the Wi-Fi networks section.
If the wireless network you want to connect to is not in the list of detected networks,
scroll down the screen, and then tap Add Wi-Fi network. Enter the wireless network
settings, and then tap Save.

Tap the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.
If you selected an open network, you will be automatically connected to the network.
If you selected a network that is secured with WEP, enter the key and then tap
Connect.

Depending on the network type and its security settings, you may also need to enter more information
or choose a security certificate.
When your phone is connected to a wireless network, the Wi-Fi icon appears in the
status bar and tells you the approximate signal strength (number of bands that light up).
The next time your phone connects to a previously accessed secured wireless network, you
will not be prompted to enter the key or other security information again, unless you reset
your phone to its factory default settings.
