You can either connect an Ethernet cable to the port on the back of the system or use the Network Settings section of the Settings menu on your Home Screen to connect to an available Wi-Fi network. Press left or right on your controller's left thumb stick to select "Settings." Press up or down on your left thumb stick to select "System Update." Select "Update Via Internet" and click "X."
