Wireless Settings on the NOOK Tablet - dummies

By Corey Sandler

The Wireless Settings screen on the NOOK Tablet lets you turn WiFi on or off and it lists all the wireless networks your NOOK Tablet can find.

The system asks if you want it to reconnect to any other network you have already used. The list of WiFi networks includes the name assigned by its owner and how strong the signal is (a stack of curved lines). The more dark lines you see, the better the signal.

  • To connect to an open or unsecured network, tap the network’s name.

  • To connect to a secured network (one that requires a password), tap the network name and then tap in the Password box. Type the required password (sometimes called a key) and tap Connect.


Some free networks offered at retail establishments give you the login information when you buy a drink or other item (not truly free, then, eh?); some hotels offer free service to registered guests. When you use this service, you may see all or none of the following:

  • Terms and conditions

  • A login screen

  • Credit card information page (or other payment)

The NOOK Tablet will detect this sort of network, but you have to open a web browser window to enter the required details.
