  • Tap the Wi-Fi tile to turn Wi-Fi on.
  • Tap . . . to see a list of detected wireless networks.

  • If the wireless network that you want is not listed, tap Menu icon > Add network to manually add it.

Connecting to a Wi-Fi network

  • Tap a Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.
  • If you selected a secured network, enter the network key or password.
  • Tap Connect. You'll see the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar when connected.

Preventing notifications from unsecured Wi-Fi networks

Logging into a public Wi-Fi network automatically (WISPr)

You can set HTC One to automatically log into a public Wi-Fi network that you regularly use. This saves you the trouble of going through the Wi-Fi provider's web authentication every time you connect to their Wi-Fi network. Just add your login credentials to the WISPr (Wireless Internet Service Provider roaming) settings.

Note

The access point of the Wi-Fi network needs to support the WISPr web portal. Consult the Wi-Fi provider for details.

  • With two fingers, swipe down from the status bar to open Quick Settings.
  • If Wi-Fi connection is off, tap the Wi-Fi tile to turn it on.
  • Tap . . .
  • Tap Menu icon > Advanced.
  • Under WISPr settings, select Auto login and then tap WISPr account settings > Add a new account.
  • Enter the service provider name, your login name (the full domain name), and password.
  • Tap Menu icon > Save
  • Connect to the public Wi-Fi network.

Note

  • If you have access to several public Wi-Fi networks, you can add up to five sets of login credentials to the WISPr accounts list.
  • In the WISPr accounts list, press and hold an account to remove or edit it.
