Wi-Fi network options

The options available depend on the type of network you're connecting to. To find out what settings to use, if you're
connecting to a home network, see the information that came with your Wi-Fi router; if you're connecting to an enterprise Wi-
Fi network, talk to your administrator; if you're connecting to a hotspot, see the information provided about the hotspot or talk
to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about how to connect.
