In order to connect to wireless connection, you must have a working wireless network.
Ignoring the lack of article (a wireless connection) or plural (wireless connections), this is incorrect as "wireless connection" is being used to describe a wireless network, which makes the sentence a statement of the obvious:
In order to connect to a wireless network, you must have a working wireless network.
Suggestion, incorporating rewrites of following sentences:
In order to connect wirelessly, you must be in a location with a working wireless network. To create your own, you will need to buy and install a wireless router or access point, but some locations already have a publicly accessible wireless network established.
