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.

How to set up internet on Samsung Jet


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.
  1. To get to the Wi-Fi application via the main menu, press the MENU button (either on the home screen or the hexagonal button beneath)
  2. In the main menu, swipe your finger sideways to go through the menu pages until you see the Wi-Fi icon. Press to select.
  3. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  4. Alternatively, to use the Wi-Fi Widget, from standby, press the home screen. The Widget toolbar opens up.
  5. Scroll down to find the Wi-Fi Widget icon. Press the Wi-Fi Widget. The Wi-Fi Widget will pop up on the main screen.
  6. Press the Wi-Fi Widget on the main part of the display to launch the Wi-Fi application. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  7. Once in the Wi-Fi screen, press the large Wi-Fi button in the middle of the screen to turn it on. Wi-Fi is activated and the button turns blue.
  8. Press SEARCH Nearby Wi-Fi access points (APs) will appear as small circles on the display, with their names next to them.
  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.
  11. You are taken into a settings menu for the Wi-Fi access point. If the Wi-Fi access point requires a network key code, scroll down to the Network Key panel. Press to select.
  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).
  15. If you initially pressed ADD, you will be returned to the Wi-Fi screen. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. A pop up panel appears.
  16. Press CONNECT. You will be connected and the connection illustrated onscreen.
Press the back button to return to the home screen.


  1. From the home screen press MENU to enter the main menu (Figure 1).
  2. In the main menu, press INTERNET
  3. Choose which browser option you want (Home, Enter URL, Bookmarks, etc.) (Figure 18) and press to select. If you press Home you will be taken to the pre-loaded home page.
  4. If required, use the numberpad to type in an URL or scroll a list to select bookmarks. When an URL is completed press GO. Alternatively press the bookmark you wish to access. You will taken to the web page requested.



  1. Activate Wi-Fi and press SEARCH, as before.
  2. When the Wi-Fi access point you want to connect to appears on the display (Figure 8), press it to select.
  3. A pop up options panel appears (Figure 9). Press DETAILS
  4. Details of the Wi-Fi access point appear onscreen.
  5. Scroll down by dragging your finger up the screen. Towards the bottom of the settings list, DEVICE MAC appears, with a string of 12 charactesr beneath (Figure 21). Each handset has an individual MAC address, and this panel will display your Samsung Jet's unique Mac address.
Make a note of the MAC address. You will need it if you want to use the Samsung Jet's Wi-Fi to access a secure Wi-Fi network using MAC address restrictions. This can be added into the wireless router settings access list.

Hi, i have a acrr aspire one, it was not mine and can't get it to get wi-fi or internet, am not very good at this neither, i realy need help.


First, loof for a special icon along the top row of your keyboard. One of those keys turns wi-fi on and off. You may need to hold down the "FN" key while pressing the wi-fi key. Make sure that you have selected the wi-fi "on" setting. Next, you can try going somewhere that has free wi-fi such as a Starbucks coffee bar or a restaurant. Open your internet browser (Internet Explorer has a large blue icon of the letter "e"). See if you get on the internet. If so, your wireless adapter is working OK. Now, most homes have wi-fi that is password protected. Click on the little bar graph icon in lower right corner of your screen and a list of available wi-fi networks should appear. Choose your home wi-fi and click on Connect. This will open a screen where you must enter the passwordor passphrase to gain access to the wi-fi. Good luck.

I purchased a new IPOD and I can not access the wifi from my Linksys wireless router.. I reset my Linksys router to try to solve this problem. And at first when the light was amber I was able to have...


Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
      blank.gif
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

Wi fi button


Look carefully on your "Function" keys example, F1, F2, F3 to F12 that are located above your keyboard. On each function keys, there is an icon. One of those is wi-fi. Find which function key has the wi-fi icon then find key to activate those functions. It is called "Fn" key (located in the bottom of your keyboard near "Ctrl" or "Alt"). Now press and hold "Fn" + "F#" then release. This should turn on your wi-fi. On mine, I have wi-fi on "F8" so I would press "Fn" + "F8".
