You will see a button that says WIFI networks are available. From here swipe down again and click the WIFI icon. Once turned on, choose your network.

Sound through the speakers is not loud or there is no sound.
First, make sure your sound is not on mute. You can check this by using the volume controls, which are located next to the power button. First, press one of the volume buttons and a volume controller will pop up on the top portion of the screen. Here you will you see a volume slider and three buttons which say “None” , “Priority”, and “All”. If “None” is currently selected, then your device is currently muted. To undo this, simply tap “All”. You can also change the volume directly under device settings.
If your device’s volume controls are unresponsive, seem damaged, or are missing from the device, then you will need to replace the volume control buttons. To replace your Volume Button, click Guide for instructions to do so.
If you’re sure that your device is not muted and the volume is turned up to an audible level, then your speakers may need to be replaced. Alternatively, there might be some audio heard but it cuts out at times or seems distorted. To replace your Speakers, click Guide for instructions to do so.
