How to Connect to a New Wi-Fi Network
On your main BlackBerry screen, there should be an icon that resembles an antenna, with signal lines radiating from the top of it. On older models, and current-generation BlackBerries without Wi-Fi, this symbol simply toggled your cellular radio on and off. However, it now opens the "Manage Connections" screen, allowing you to add or edit Wi-Fi connections as well as cellular or Bluetooth connections. Clicking this icon will bring up a list of options, one of which should be "WiFi Options." Clicking this will allow you to view the current Wi-Fi network you are connected to, connect to a brand new network, or manage networks you have previously connected to. To connect to a new network, press the menu key, and then click "New." You must already know the security type of the Wi-Fi network you are going to connect to.
Most networks broadcast their network name (SSID), so you can simply scan to find them. If your network has a hidden SSID, you must manually type the name in. If you are connecting to a network you found via scanning, you simply need to enter the password here, otherwise you must select the security type and then enter the password.
Once you have connected to the network, your device will give you the option to save the connection profile. Doing this allows you to easily reconnect to the network in the future without entering any information. If you wish to do so, simply name your profile here and click "Next." Otherwise, change the save option to "No," and then click "Next." At this point, if it is a public Wi-Fi network that requires payment, you can enter the information here, otherwise just click "Finish."
