How to connect the nook to a Wi-Fi hotspot

By Eugene Ramos

You can download e-books and media as well as use the Internet whenever your Nook is near an accessible Wi-Fi hotspot. Wi-Fi is a type of radio transmission that computers can use to communicate and share data. Many places, such as hotels, public libraries and some restaurants, have open Wi-Fi sources.

Step 1

Scroll to the right on the main menu, and click the "Wi-Fi" button.

Step 2

Select "Wi-Fi Hotspot."

Step 3

Select the Wi-Fi hotspot you wish to connect to. Usually this will be the one with the highest signal bars, but it may be the one you are authorized to use as well.

Step 4

Enter a password if prompted. This is the password for the Wi-Fi account, not your Nook. Check with your Internet service provider for the password, then input the code and select "Submit."

Step 5

Select "Other Hotspot" if the Wi-Fi source you want is not listed, and enter the service set identifier, or SSID, and security type that your Wi-Fi uses.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are not downloading, you can turn off the Wi-Fi to save battery life. Don't forget to turn it back on to use the online features.
