NOTES:

  • Once the Wi-Fi network is configured, your Reader will connect to it whenever it is in range. When the Reader device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon appears on the wireless icon area on the bottom left of the Reader screen. The more bars you see on the icon, the stronger the connection.
  • If no Wi-Fi networks are available, configured, or the Wi-Fi feature is turned off, your Reader device will connect automatically via 3G.

IMPORTANT: If after following this procedure you are unable to establish a connection, a different procedure is available for troubleshooting Wi-Fi connections .
