1. Swipe down on the touchscreen

2. Press Connect

3. You will then see Capture App, Connect New Device ( swipe up on the touch screen till you see, "Wireless Connections".

4. Press the Wireless Connections Tab (It will briefly turn blue) On the right side of the wireless connections tab you will see a icon that is similiar to a power switch. If it is White (Wireless is on), Gray (Wireless is off).
