How to Connect to Ford Vehicle Wi-Fi  

Ford vehicles often come equipped with WiFi hotspot capabilities these days. This is often on the ATT network, where you can get 4G LTE. The big antennas on these vehicles can project WiFi up to 50 feet or so around the vehicle. You can provide Internet for as many as 10 devices. Here's some info about setting this up in order for it to go smoothly.

Ford WiFi

First, you have to make sure that you have access to this SYNC Connect option. You can confirm this on the Connect section of the Ford site. Once you're sure about this, you need to make sure your vehicle is stopped and parked somewhere safe.

Then, start your vehicle and look for the “Settings” section in the bottom right of the SYNC display in your Ford vehicle. Scroll over until it says “WiFi and Hotspot” and select this menu. Next, select the “Vehicle Hotspot” tab.

After that, you're going to want to make sure you're hotspot is on by going to that screen and making sure it says “on” there. If you tap it, it should switch to on if it isn't already. The next thing to pay attention to here is the SSID name, which stands for “Service Set Identifier.” This will be on default if you haven't changed it, but this is the name of your Ford network and password. If you click “edit” toward the center bottom of the screen, you can change this to whatever you want, including changing the password. This can help you feel like your network is more secure.

You're also going to want to make sure the “WiFi Visibility” section is toggled on. This is important so that you can make sure the name shows up on network lists so you can select it later.

Connecting Devices

On the device that you want to connect, turn on the WiFi, and then look at the network list. You should see the Ford hotspot's name listed there. You should be able to select it and then enter the correct password. The WiFi toggle for most phones is somewhere under “Settings.”
