How to Update a Wi-Fi Network’s Password on Your Android Tablet
Some locations follow good computer security and change their Wi-Fi passwords. When you revisit that one charming café and find that your Android tablet doesn’t reconnect to the network, follow these steps:
- Obtain the new password.
Demand the new password from someone in charge, like the confused young woman who keeps asking whether you want “room” in your black coffee.
- Open the Settings app and choose Wi-Fi.
- If the given network doesn’t appear in the list, tap the Action Overflow or MORE button and choose Saved Networks.
The list of saved network appears — if any networks have been saved.
- Choose the Wi-Fi network from the list.
For example, Café Wambooli has changed its Wi-Fi password. Choose the Wambooli network from the list.
- Tap the FORGET button.
- Tap the Back navigation icon, and then establish a new connection to the network.
If these steps don’t work, and you’re certain that you typed the proper password, disable the tablet’s Wi-Fi radio (turn off the master control), and then enable it again (turn on the master control).
