Samsung Galaxy note ii lte-setting up a WiFi hotspot


Use your Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE to set up a WiFi hotspot - here's how.

 
Your device uses a non-harmonised frequency and is intended for use in all European countries. The WLAN can be operated in the EU without restriction indoors, but cannot be operated legally outdoors in France.
 
Activate the WLAN feature
 
In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings → Wireless and network → WiFi settings → WiFi.
An active WLAN running in the background will consume battery power. To preserve battery power, activate the WLAN only when needed.
 
Find and connect to a WLAN
 
1 In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings → Wireless and network → WiFi settings.
The device will automatically search for available WLANs.
2 Select a network under WiFi networks.
3 Enter a password for the network (if necessary).
4 Select Connect.
 
Add a WLAN manually
1 In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings → Wireless and network → WiFi settings → Add WiFi network.
2 Enter the SSID for the network and select the security type.
3 Set the security settings depending on the selected security type.
4 Select Save.
 
Connect to a WLAN using a WiFi Protected Setup (WPS)
Using WPS, you can connect to a secured network. To connect to a WLAN with a WPS button,
1 In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings
→ Wireless and network → WiFi settings.
2 Select WPS button connection.
3 Press a WPS button on the access point within two minutes.
 
To connect to a WLAN with a WPS PIN,
1 In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings → Wireless and network → WiFi settings.
2 Select a network indicated by the WPS icon and select WPS PIN.
3 On the access point, enter the PIN and press the start button.
 
Turn your device on and off
 
To turn on your device, press and hold the Power key. If you are turning on your device for the first time, follow the onscreen instructions to set up your device.
To turn off your device, press and hold the Power key, and then select Power off → OK.
Follow all posted warnings and directions from authorised personnel in areas where the use of wireless devices is restricted, such as aeroplanes and hospitals.
To use only your devices' non-network services, switch to Flight mode. Press and hold the Power key and select Flight mode.
