Are you trying to just connect to wifi to access a local network or are you trying to access the internet? If you just want to connect to a local network, maybe to access other devices on the network, you would need a router broadcasting the network that all the devices connect to. If you are only trying to get access to the internet, consider purchasing a hot spot device. It will provide cellular type service and will broadcast a wifi signal that you can connect your tablet or other devices to for internet access. Hot spots will cost you a monthly fee for the service and you will have to purchase the device itself. Another possibility is to use your cell phone as a hot spot and tether the tablet to it. Just remember whatever data you use on your tablet will be charged to your data plan on your cell phone. On my nexus 5x phone, it's fairly easy to turn on (settings, under wireless and networks select more, select tethering and portable hotspot, turn on portable wifi hotspot, set a password if you want to). Once turned on, the phone will broadcast a signal that you can connect other devices to for internet access. Some cellular providers don't allow tethering. If that is the case with yours there are some apps that will still allow you to set up tethering such as AndroidTethering or Easy Tether. In the past, I've had some trouble connecting wirelessly using the apps and found that using USB tether options worked better for me.
this does depend on y our phone i would think mainly on your android version. i am not sure if it works with 4.4 but i did a factory reset of my htc amaze 4g and it went back to 4.1. after 2 gigs of wifi i hotspot i get the tmobile screen saying i used 2gig up and need to pay for a plan.. so here is my solution that worked for me.
1. download foxfi from android market and pay for the key. if u dont pay for the key then u will get a limited amount of data u can tether which will defeat the purpose. the key is not alot.
2. install the pda.net program on your pc. this is the important part here.
3. when you open foxifi on your phone you must have your data on then click ethernet. now it will tell you to open it on your pc.
4. this step here is the biggie, right click on the pda.net icon in your bottom right screen of your pc that shows all open programs. it will look like a phone. then go to settings, then hide tether usage and level I. thats all.
5. now back on your phone u can click on wifi tether in foxfi. be sure to password your tethering or others might pick it up (neighbors).
6. i also use my desktop with the usb charger cable from my phone in ethernet mode since i have 3meg dsl my tmobile 4g goes up to 10 at my house and 2mb upload but at my job my 4g goes up to 20 meg. hope this helps u like it did me. also on the android market section it tells you the website for the foxfi and the steps if mines were not clear. i downloaded 80 gigs in a month using my 4g never slowed down or nothing.
It should be there...Goto Settings - Wireless & Network - Tethering & Portable Hotspots .
First though activate the Wifi then the Tethering option as described above.
Switch on any device you want to tether to and look for your device name (or you can setup a password from same list) and continue to tether.
Be advised though, some Network Operators will tell you that it's unable to tether or warn you against it. But I've had this a few times and I still tether what I like.
also be advised that if you on capped data plan, keep an eye on your data limits.
You have a WiFi device that must send/receive signals from your home wireless system. That generally doesn't extend much out of the home. You need to find a free wifi zone or kupgrade to an iPad with cellular service that connects you like a built-in phone.
Settings > Wireless & networks > More... > Tethering & portable hotspot > Set up Wi-Fi hotspot,(put in my settings - SSID, security "WPA2 PSK", and password)SaveCheck "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot"
At this point the hotspot turns on and is discover-able by other devices
Expecting your PC (having no inbuilt/internally installed WiFi adapter) to pick up tethering/hotspot WiFi signal (from your phone) without a WiFi adapter attached/connected into your PC's USB port is the same as expecting your PC's low battery to charge to full capacity when the power cable is not connected to the power supply point.
Get WiFi adapter connected to your PC first and then attempt to connect to your phone's wifi tether/hotspot
