    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Wi-Fi®

    Use ‎Wi-Fi®‎ connections to surf the Internet, download applications, or send and receive emails. Once you have connected to a ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network, your device remembers the network and automatically connects to it the next time you come within range.

    Some ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks require you to log in to a web page before you can get access. Contact the relevant ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network administrator for more information.

    The signal strength of ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks can differ. Moving closer to the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ access point increases the signal strength.

    Available ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks may be open or secured:
    • Open networks are indicated by Icn sony stat sys wifi signal 4 next to the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network name.
    • Secured networks are indicated by Icn sony stat sys wifi lock next to the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network name.

    Note

    Some ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks do not show up in the list of available networks because they do not broadcast their network name (SSID). If you know the network name, you can add it manually to your list of available ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks.

    To turn on Wi-Fi®

    1. From your Home screen, tap Icn sony home apptray normal.
    2. Find and tap Settings.
    3. Drag the slider beside Wi-Fi to the right to turn on the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ function.

    Note

    It may take a few seconds before ‎Wi-Fi®‎ is enabled.

    Increasing Wi-Fi® signal strength

    There are a number of things you can do to increase the strength of a ‎Wi-Fi®‎ signal:

    • Move your device closer to the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ access point.
    • Move the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ access point away from any potential obstructions or interference.
    • Don’t cover the ‎Wi-Fi®‎ antenna area of your device (the highlighted area in the illustration).

    Wi-Fi® settings

    When you are connected to a ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network or when there are ‎Wi-Fi®‎ networks available in your vicinity, it is possible to view the status of these networks. You can also enable your device to notify you whenever an open ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network is detected.

    If you are not connected to a ‎Wi-Fi®‎ network, your device uses a mobile data connection to access the Internet (if you have set up and enabled a mobile data connection on your device). By adding a ‎Wi-Fi®‎ sleep policy, you can specify when to switch from ‎Wi-Fi®‎ to mobile data.
