I can'tload Web pages but wifi is on. Am using windows 8. What can I do to solve the priblem


There is a difference between Wi-Fi being on and Wi-Fi being connected. In Settings you can turn on Wi-Fi. All this does is turn on the Wi-Fi radio receiver.

With the receiver turned on you should then be able to view a list of Wi-Fi routers. You will probably see a little lock towards the bottom of the virtual radio signal symbol. These locked Wi-Fi stations cannot be connected to unless you have the right password to log onto them. Most people these days have secured their Wi-Fi routers so unauthorized folks cannot use them.

If you are using your own home router or wireless hotspot from a telecom, you will still have to select it from the list of Wi-Fi routers shown and click connect. If you haven't already entered a password, you will have to enter one.

This can all be done from them Charms menu that slides out on the right. Click Settings and Wi-Fi available.

How do get wi-fy on my tablet?


It's a good idea to access Wi-Fi whenever possible to avoid data charges. After you've activated the Android tablet's Wi-Fi radio, you can connect to an available wireless network. Obey these steps:
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Choose Wi-Fi.On some Samsung tablets, you find the Wi-Fi item on the Connections tab. Choose Wi-Fi to view a list of available Wi-Fi networks on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, the list shows up full screen.
    433273.image0.jpg
  3. Choose a wireless network from the list.When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding Wi-Fi access from your current location.
  4. If prompted, type the network password.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
  5. Touch the Connect button.
    The network is connected immediately. If not, try the password again.
When the tablet is connected to a wireless network, you see the Wi-Fi Connected status icon. This icon indicates that the tablet's Wi-Fi is on, connected, and communicating with a Wi-Fi network.
Some wireless networks don't broadcast their names, which adds security but also makes connecting more difficult. In those cases, touch the Add icon. This icon might also be labeled Add Wi-Fi or Manually Connect. To make the connection, type the network name, or SSID, and choose the type of security.
You also need the password, if one is used. You can obtain this information from the girl with the pink hair who sold you coffee or from whoever is in charge of the wireless network at your location.
  • Not every wireless network has a password. Still:
  • Be careful when connecting to a non-password-protected network. It's possible that the Bad Guys can monitor such a network, stealing passwords and other information.
  • Some public networks are open to anyone, but you have to use the web browser app to find a login web page that lets you access the network: Simply browse to any page on the Internet, and the login web page shows up.
  • The Android tablet automatically remembers every Wi-Fi network it has ever been connected to and automatically reconnects upon finding the same network again.
  • To disconnect from a Wi-Fi network, simply turn off Wi-Fi.
  • Use Wi-Fi whenever you plan to remain in one location for a while. Unlike a mobile data network, a Wi-Fi network's broadcast signal has a limited range. If you wander too far away, your tablet loses the signal and is disconnected.

2: Only by pressing F2
3: There will be a slider switch on either side of your system for the Wi-Fi connectionicon1.png you can slide to the number 1 position and the wireless connection will be activated.
But it depends upon the model of your system.

You can also try this steps:
Switch can also be found on the front, see if there is a bar which you can switch it on or off. Also FN+F12 also possible. some laptop has another key for only that function too. See if you can see a button with a Athene icon on your keyboard. It looks like a staff with 3 Waves above it most of the time..

Switching wireless on


Powerup the laptop and wait for the main screen to appear.

Turnon the laptop's Wi-Fi switch, typically located on the left or right edge ofthe laptop near the front of the computer. Look for a small, sliding switch.

Viewthe wireless networks in range of your laptop by double clicking on the Wi-Fiicon in the lower right-hand corner of your laptop screen. The icon resembles acomputer monitor with three curved lines, like radio waves, emanating from theside.

Checkthe list of available wireless networks and select the network with thestrongest signal. The signal strength is represented by several bars next tothe name of each network. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal.Choose a network that you can access---either your own Internet connection athome or the office, or the Wi-Fi wireless network connection available for freein some restaurants, coffee shops, motels and other businesses that offer Wi-Fito their customers.

Selecta wireless network and click the "Connect" button.

Enterthe code for accessing the network if prompted to do so. For example, if youare staying at a motel that offers Wi-Fi access to guests, the code will besupplied to you at check-in, or you can call the front desk to obtain it. Mostsystems require you to enter the code twice.

Waitfor the window to display a message that the Wi-Fi is connected.

Openyour Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
