How to Connect the Nintendo Switch to Your Wi-Fi
Nintendo’s newest console is a little marvel in itself - it can play games both on the go and also display them on a huge TV in HD resolution. And of course, as we should expect from a modern gaming console, it is Wi-Fi capable, meaning you can connect it to any Wi-Fi hotspot you find at home or on the go.
Setting up the Nintendo Switch for Wi-Fi based use is pretty simple, but be warned - its Wi-Fi settings are quite limited on the software side. This means that your Wi-Fi has to broadcast its SSID, and it can’t be one that requires you to log in using a web page - many public Wi-Fi networks use the latter method for authenticating users. If you are unable to connect to your Wi-Fi, ensure that its SSID is broadcasted by the router and that it uses a regular home router.
To connect the Nintendo Switch to a Wi-Fi network, do the following:
Press the Home button on your controller.
Select Internet on the left, then Internet Settings on the right panel.
The Switch will automatically display all found Wi-Fi networks, select yours.
If a password is required, type it in by using the on-screen keyboard.
