Does a chromebook need wifi to work?
Except for very simple things, yes.
The Chromebook and its operating system Chrome OS were designed to operate as clients over the internet to cloud based servers, which is where most programs for Chromebooks actually run (not native on the Chromebook itself as on other laptops). As Chromebooks access the internet using wifi, they cannot access the cloud based servers without wifi and will not be able to work for any programs that actually run on those servers.
In the Wifi Configuration, add the hotspot as one of your connections. WELL if u really need wifi you need a tooth pic and game that lets go to wifi setting first go to wifi setting then go to 1 2 3 on in settings then put your tooth pick on top left corner then click find wifi and it will work just make sure your wifi is on.
Of course it works because it is wifi compatible.all you need to do is to enter the wifi key which is located on the back of the device (you need to remove the battery cover though)locate the wifi network on the ps3 connect to it,enter the wifi key and dont forget to do the activation on the gateway of the device (192.168.1.1)
At this time, you cannot get Microsoft Word or PowerPoint on a Samsung Chromebook. However, you can read and edit either files if you use Google Drive (Docs), QuickOffice, or a number of 3rd party office suites that use Chrome OS. As of today (Sept. 22nd, 2014), there are apps available in the Chrome Web Store for Word, Excel and PowerPoint created by Live.com. They work but have a somewhat limited function from the originals…
If you are near a wifi network you can connect by doing the following: Go to Settings Click Wifi Click the network that you want to join you may need a password so enter that as well wait to see if you have a good connection test the Internet or app store or any other app that requires wifi if it doesn't work you might need to fix wifi or enter password again
