How to Connect the Xbox One to Your Wi-Fi
Most modern gaming consoles are Wi-Fi capable by default, enabling them to connect to most Wi-Fi networks commonly found in people’s homes. The Xbox One is just the same, and while we recommend using an Ethernet cable to ensure maximum stability, Wi-Fi is still fairly good for online play, provided the signal is strong enough. Here are the steps you need to take your Xbox One online via Wi-Fi.
Open your Xbox Guide by pressing the Xbox button on your controller.
Navigate to: Settings - All Settings - Network - Network Settings
Select Set Up Wireless Network, but note that if there is already a connection established, this option will erase it - unlike your phone, the Xbox One is not designed to switch between multiple stored Wi-Fi networks. So if you bring the console with yourself to multiple places, you will always have to set up Wi-Fi every time you want to connect.
Generally, connecting to a Wi-Fi network is easy - select Set Up Wireless Network, select your Wi-Fi from the ones the Xbox One detected, and enter your Wi-Fi’s password. This is it for most home users.
However, if you use the console at a more heavily secured place, you will need to contact a system administrator to help you get on. The Advanced Setup screen has the following options:
Static IP address
DNS server name
DHCP server name.
These are required only if your network requires manually assigning these addresses, which is not prevalent in home networks.
If you want to disconnect from your Wi-Fi for any reason, you can do so at the same place on the Network screen - just select Go Offline.
