How to Connect to Wi-Fi on an iPad Manually

Your iPad will automatically connect to wireless networks it recognizes, such as your home or company network. However, changing or accessing a new network will require you to connect manually. Whether it is an open network that broadcasts its presence and network name or a closed network that doesn't advertise its presence, you can create a connection by going into the Wi-Fi section of your iPad's Settings.

Open Networks
