Are you living in hospital accomodation with WIFI supplied by INS? Please use the help section below to connect with your device.

Turn on your phone and go to the settings app (on most versions of Android can be found by swiping down from the very top of the screen to open the notifications centre, then locating and pressing the cog icon.

On the settings app, locate the option that says “Network & Internet”. Other names may be “WiFi”, “Internet Access”. Press this option.

Press the option “Wi-Fi” to open up a list of the nearby WiFi access points.

Ensure that WiFi is turned on.

Look down the list of WiFi access points that your phone and select the access point with the strongest signal that does not have a padlock symbol next to it, and select that access point (you may need to click “connect”).

Select whichever access point is has the greatest signal on the list. This is therefore likely to be the closest access point to you, and so will be the most reliable.

If the access point has a padlock symbol next to it, that access point is not an INS access point and so you will be unable to connect to the internet through that access point.

This section assumes that you have found a WiFi access point to connect to and have clicked to connect to it.

Once you have clicked on a network to connect to it, if a web page automatically loads up, you can move on to the next section of instructions “Registering for an account”.

If no web page loads, you must cause it to load manually. To do this, open a web browser on your phone (for example Chrome, Firefox, etc), and search for something. This will cause the search to redirect to the login/register portal.
