    How do you connect to the internet using the built in wireless connection when I'm on the road?

    Hello and welcome, woodsm. I combined your two posts into one thread here for you. :)

    On the Tab, just go into the wifi settings and configure to allow scanning for open networks. Most "hot spots," wifi routers/networks in public, just walk you through the setup once you allow for scanning. They have their own password, etc (or none).

    Do you mean that your data connection with the carrier is not set up? That is not wifi, it is a signal exchange between the nearest carrier's tower and your device.

    In that same "wifi and networking" area of the settings menu is a check box for the network.

    Which carrier are you in contract with? Verizon? Sprint? T-Mobile, etc.?

    Yes, that's what I'm talking about. I have Verizon.

    It should connect via the CDMA radio, and or the LTE SIM/radio Verizon would have provided.

    What did Verizon say?

    Make sure you have a sim card. I have the 7.7 on Verizon too and they provided me with a sim card. I walked out of the store with LTE already activated.
