Android Tablet: How to connect to the internet


When you first get your tablet,you’ll want to connect it
to the internet.
The internet gives you access to the
web where you can browse web pages,
and to online stores
where you can find apps,
music, movies and e-books.There are lots of different
models of Android tablets
and they come in two main types.Those that connect to the internet
via the 3G or 4G mobile network
that smartphones use,and those that connect via
your home wi-fi.
If you have a 3G or 4G tablet,
getting connected is easy –
the tablet just connects
automatically.
As long as you’re in an area
with good mobile phone coverage
you’ll be connected to the internet
and the World Wide Web.
On wi-fi models getting connected
requires a few simple steps.
When you switch a new tablet on
for the first time
Google will ask you for the language
you want to use,
and then to connect to a network.You’ll need a home wi-fi network,or be somewhere like a library
or coffee shop that has wi-fi.
You also need to know
the network ID –
that’s its name – and the password.If you are at home you should see
the name of your wireless network.
You might see your neighbours’ or
some other unfamiliar networks too,
but you can safely ignore them.Tap your network name.Your tablet will then ask
for the network password.
Type this in using your
onscreen keyboard.
Tap the ‘Connect’ button – the
tablet will connect to your wi-fi.
Then hit ‘Next’ to
see your date settings.
Select the right time zoneand hit ‘Next’ again to see
the Google account screen.
Now that your tablet is connected
you’ll want a Google account.
On an Android tablet a Google
account gives you access
to Google’s free Gmail
electronic mail service,
plus the ability to download apps,
games, movies and books
through the Google Play Store.Getting an account
is completely free
and can be shared between
other Android tablets
and smartphones that you own,as well as Google’s
web browser services.
From the Google account screen
choose ‘Sign in’
if you already have a Gmail account.Just use the onscreen keyboardto enter your email address
and password, then tap ‘Sign in’.
If you don’t have a Gmail account,
select ‘Get an account’.
You’ll be asked to provide
some information about yourself,
including your name and the email
address that you want to use.
Next, create a password.Google will indicate
if your password is strong enough.
If it’s not, try adding an
exclamation point to the end
to help make the password stronger.If you have a different
email address
like a BigPond email account,type it into the
‘Recovery Email Address’ screen.
This is just in case you forget how
to log in to your Google account,
so you can recover the password
and get back in.
On the next screen,
select ‘I accept’
to finish creating your account,and agree to the
terms and conditions.
Follow the prompts on
the remaining screens to finish up.
Google will ask you if you want
to provide credit card details
for buying things on its Play Store,but you don’t need to
if you don’t want to.
Select ‘Next’ on the backup screen
to keep your tablet backed up.
And then ‘Next’ again
on Google’s Location Services
used for mapping and finding things
that are near you.
Congratulations!You now have a Google account
and you’re connected to Google Mail.
You can now get the most
out of your Android tablet,
including browsing the web,
viewing YouTube
and discovering fun and handy apps
in the Google Play Store.
