We need more information than that, Eleanor... what phone do you have? Have you switched on WiFi on your phone? What WiFi network are you trying to connect to?

What's your phone, Eleanor?
Disabling Mobile Data shouldn't have had any affect on your ability to connect to Wi-Fi.

Have you tried reseting the Wi-Fi from the back of the router?

Yes, I would recommend that you turn your wifi router off and on then try to connect again. Also a battery pull or a hard reset of your phone usually works as well.

If neither of those work, try a full factory data reset on your phone.

If none of these things work, there may be a login error for your wifi network or the device is defective.

Good luck.
