Sony Tablet™ has built-in wireless capability that allows it to connect to an available Wi-Fi network in range.  Connecting your tablet wirelessly is easy but there are instances when you can experience difficulties because of different factors.

The Sony Tablet™ has a Wi-Fi checker application that is very useful for diagnosing wireless connectivity issues on the device itself, the router or even the Internet.  If a problem is detected, the Wi-Fi checker application will suggest possible solutions on how to resolve it.

NOTE:  Each of the steps will also display the different components for wireless connection.
