How to set up wifi for Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus

Very first thing that I did after purchasing my Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus was to set up Wi-Fi and access Internet! I have capture screenshots of each step to share it with you.

At home I have setup Wi-Fi access point that allows me to access Internet on my laptop without any messy wires!

I have chosen unlimited broadband plan to enjoy internet without worrying about data usage. So, why not set up Wi-Fi for Smartphone too!

Step by step configuration shown here is for Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. However, once you understand basics of Wi-Fi set up, you can easily configure other Smartphone too.

First of all you need to turn on Wi-Fi for your Smartphone. 

Step-1 Tap on the bottom left Menu button. Screen as shown in the Figure 1.1 will appear.

Step-5 Tap on the Wi-Fi check box to turn it on. Your screen will quickly flash a message “Turning on wi-fi...” as soon as your check box will get selected.

Step-6 It will take a few seconds to search for nearby Wi-Fi networks. Soon you will be able to see a list of available Wi-Fi networks.

In my case my home Wi-Fi network’s SSID( name of my wi-fi network) is ‘Omshanti’ at present. However, I keep changing it periodically!

Step-7 Tap on Wi-Fi network you want to get connected to. You are done with your Wi-Fi configuration if you are connecting to an open Wi-Fi network.

In my case ‘Omshanti’ is Secured Wi-Fi network.

When you try to connect to a Secured Wi-Fi network it will as for Network Security Key(usually a 13 digit number). Once you enter it you are connected to your Wi-Fi access point!

You can even check signal strength from the top bar of your Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus as shown in the Figure 1.5.
