Any time your phone has an open Wi-Fi connection, you can check to see signal strength, link speed (how fast data is transferred), which security type is being used and the IP address.
To do this, open the settings from the home screen, tap 'Wi-Fi' and look for the SSID of the network you are connected to. Tap the SSID and a box will open which displays all of the information about the Wi-Fi connection.

Connecting to Wi-Fi on Android -Open Network Notifications

When you move out of range of your home or office Wi-Fi network, the connection to it will be lost. However, many bars, restaurants and other public places offer free Wi-Fi and allow anyone to connect to their network.
If you want to be notified on your phone when you are in range of an open network, turn on the network notification option in the Wi-Fi settings menu (often under Advanced settings). As long as Wi-Fi is turned on (even if not connected), you will now be notified each time your smartphone detects the signal of an open network you can connect to.
