How to connect PS4 to a Wi-Fi network
Let’s see step by step what you must do to get your PlayStation 4 to connect to a Wi-Fi network. The process is easier than you think:
- The first thing we are going to do is go to “Net”.
- After this we have to access “Set up internet connection”.
- Here we are going to select “Use Wi-Fi”.
- Now we have to choose “Easy”. What will happen is that all the networks that are available will be displayed. What you should do is choose yours and then enter the password.
If the password is correct, your PS4 will be connected to Wi-Fi and you will not need to configure this again since the console will remain connected to that network until you decide to delete it manually.

How to connect PS4 to a mobile network
Basically it is done in the same way that we discussed a little above. Only first we are going to have to prepare the mobile network to be able to find it in the console.
- For this we are going to “Settings”.
- Then we go to “Internet and network”.
- Here we have to choose “Hotspots and portable devices”.
- We press on “Wi-Fi hotspost”And then we flip the switch to activate the mobile network.
- Depending on the Android version and the customization layer instead of “Hotspot and mobile devices“May appear”Portable Wi-Fi zone“In this case then we will have to go to”Set up portable hotspot”.
Once we are ready to connect the PS4 to the mobile network that we have recently created, we have to follow the same steps that we leave you at the beginning of this article.
What you should keep in mind is that a mobile network is slow compared to a Wi-Fi connection so you will not be able to fully enjoy any online game. In addition, PS4 consumes a lot of data and transfer, which means that if you have a limited plan you will end up consuming all the data in it in a very short time.
It doesn’t matter if your data plan is 5GB or 10GB, We can assure you that in a few games played you will no longer have mobile data. Also, you are going to have a pretty bad experience since your ping will be very high due to the slow connection of your mobile network.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to connect the PS4 in a Wi-Fi network to be able to enjoy the online games that the Sony console offers us. Using a mobile network, we will not only have a bad experience, but we will consume all mobile data.
