    The Sony Xperia android phone does provide wifi connectivity. You can get connected to any open wifi networks or to protected network if you have the pass code. To scan for a wireless network from your android phone, you need to first tap on applications from the home screen. There you will be able to find the option called settings. There you will have to scroll and tap on the option called Wifi. Then you need to tap on the option called Scan. This will show you the available networks and you need to tap on the network you need to connect and tap on connect.

    Hello Guest,
    Just switch on the wi-fi and the scan for networks automatically begins. For this, just point to Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks>Wi-fi. Now, tap on wi-fi settings and then select "Scan for Networks" in case you want a manual search. Thank You. Hope this helps. :-)

    You can easily scan WiFi on your android but in following way. But if you are facing
    problem in scanning from there then you can scan it by using any apps also. there
    are many free apps available. But first try following way of scanning.

    Step:-1 First of all Go to the Setting option in your Phone menu

    Step:-2 There select the option Wireless and Network

    Step:-3 In that go to the WiFi

    Step:-4 Press on that a pop up will be open
