Setting up your Wi-Fi connection on the Dell Venue 7 (3730) and Venue 8 (3830) tablets

The Wi-Fi connection will normally be configured during the first-time setup when you turn on your device for the first time. If you do not have a wireless network available when you first start it up or if you want to change the Wi-Fi connection later, it is easy to do.

NOTE: Screenshots appear here in English. On your tablet, they will appear in the language you select

  1. From the home page, touch the icon in the center of the bottom row to access all your apps.

  2. Touch the Settings icon. (You may have to swipe to the second page of Apps.)

  3. Make sure the Wi-Fi slider at the top left is in the ON position, then choose the network you wish to use from the list on the right side.

  4. If the network is a secure Wi-Fi network, you will be prompted to enter a network password.


If you are having problems setting up your wireless connection, check the following:

  • Verify that Wi-Fi is turned on in the Settings (see step 3).
  • Verify that your tablet is not in Airplane mode. Check for the airplane icon on the status bar at the top of the screen. To turn off Airplane Mode, go to the settings and touch More.
  • Try forgetting the network. On the Settings screen, touch the network you want to forget and touch the Forget button. Now select your desired network from the list and try to connect to it again.
