      • The Nintendo Switch console will automatically search for nearby Wi-Fi signals.
    4. Select the appropriate network name (SSID) from the list.
      • If you are unable to find your network's name, stand closer to the wireless router and press the Y Button to search again.
      • If the network name is greyed out, this indicates the wireless security type being used is not supported by the Nintendo Switch console.
      • If you are still unable to find your network, this may indicate an issue with the wireless network environment.
    5. If prompted, use the on-screen keyboard to enter the network's wireless password. hac-screenshot-systemsettings-internetpassword.jpg
    6. The Nintendo Switch console will test the internet connection. Once the test is complete, select "OK" to complete the process.
      • If the connection test fails, an error code and message will appear which can help you troubleshoot connection errors.
