Verify Wi-Fi is enabled. Make sure the switch is flipped to the On position, and that your network is listed under Choose a Network...
Choose a network. There may be more than one listed—make sure you are choose one that you have access to. If you are on your home network, and your router is broadcasting your SSID (the default behavior), choose it from the list. Note: if you're accessing a Wi-Fi network at your coffee shop or another location, you may need to enter a password. Ask the proprietor if they have free Wi-Fi, and if they do, they'll be happy to give you the password.

Tap Security if needed, and select the security type. Tap the Other Network button at the top of the screen to get back to the Other Network screen.
Enter your password. This is the key in your wireless modem setting.
Click Join. After you have typed in your security password, click Join and you should be connected. The network name (SSID) should show in 'choose a network' with a check mark next to it.
