Guest Account Cannot Access Internet on Surface Pro Windows 8

I am the administrator and have created a guest account for my child on my Surface Pro. The guest account only have limited access to the installed app on the tablet. My child login to the Windows 8 and open IE 10, but it could not access internet connection. Changing to my account and the WiFi connection works fine.
