Información general

  1. ¿Qué es Wi-Fi?

    Wi-Fi is a wireless network connection that gives you access to the internet. When you're connected to Wi-Fi with your Verizon Wireless device, you won't be charged for any data you use because you aren't using the Verizon Wireless network. All of our current devices can connect to Wi-Fi.

    We recommend you connect to Wi-Fi networks you know and trust whenever they are available. This is a great way to manage how much data you use and avoid extra charges.

    Learn how to use Wi-Fi on your device with our Simuladores interactivos or by referring to your device's Guía del usuario.

  2. Which Wi-Fi networks and hotspots can my Verizon Wireless device connect to?

    You can connect to any open Wi-Fi network. You can also connect to a secure Wi-Fi network if you have the password. Some public Wi-Fi networks (sometimes called hotspots) require a username and password and/or require you to accept an "End User License Agreement." You can connect to any Wi-Fi network, as long as you have the required username and password.

  3. What can I do to secure my device before connecting to Wi-Fi?

    Here are some things you can do to help keep your device and personal information secure:

    • Connect to familiar Wi-Fi networks: Only connect to networks that you know or trust. When you're connected to a Wi-Fi network, it's possible for the network administrator and even other connected users to gain access to your device without your permission.

    • Connect to secure Wi-Fi networks: Look for networks that ask for a password. These generally can only be accessed by people the network owner allows. Wi-Fi networks that don't require a password can be accessed by anybody.

    • Install firewall and anti-virus: Always use a firewall on your computer and have current anti-virus software on your devices to protect from possible infection or attack.
  4. ¿Puedo usar VZAccess® Manager para conectarme a un hotspot Wi-Fi?

    Yes. To view and connect to an available Wi-Fi network using VZAccess Manager, go to the Networks tab and select the network you want to connect to.

  5. Are there any limitations when using a Wi-Fi network?

    Some Wi-Fi networks may not always provide the minimum download speeds or bandwidth required for all Internet activities. Algunas actividades de internet, por ejemplo el streaming de video, requieren velocidades más rápidas que otras, como verificar el email. The connection speed and available bandwidth may vary between networks.

  6. ¿Wi-Fi es compatible con VPN?

    Yes, you can establish a VPN connection while using Wi-Fi over most networks or hotspots. Contact your IT administrator for further assistance.

  7. ¿Por qué mi VPN se desconecta cuando cambio de red (Ej.: de broadband móvil a Wi-Fi o viceversa)?

    Por razones de seguridad, las VPN de muchas empresas requieren que no cambies de ubicación o de dirección IP.

    Si tienes preguntas, dudas o necesitas asistencia con la VPN de tu compañía, contacta a tu administrador de TI o con el servicio de asistencia.
