Here are the steps that you will be able to use to perform the Hard Reset on your device:

-Power off your device

-Hold the power button + volume up button

-Release the buttons when you reach the boot menu on your device

-On the boot menu use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

-Press the power button to make the selection

-After making the selection simply use the volume keys to highlight the reboot device

After doing all of this your device will in fact Hard Reset itself to allow you to be able to get into your device around the pattern screen.

How can I log into my phone with WiFi off and too many patterns have been attempted?

I know the details of my Gmail account but WiFi is off. So it does not respond to the Gmail account details inputted, except for the incorrect username or password response, which I know is due the absence of the WiFi. What can I do please?

How to reset android device without using gmail id is a VisiHow page that in the second answer explains how to use ADB tools. You will use your PC to connect to the phone and then unlock it. If you do not want to do that then your only option is to hard reset the phone. If you have a Lollipop or Marshmallow OS on the phone, enable the WiFi after the hard reset and try your Google Account. It may not work which means that you will have to reinstall the OS using a Stock ROM for your device.

You will either have to use the ADB tools method mentioned in the Answer above or hard reset your tablet. No WiFi means that the tablet can't communicate to the Google Account to unlock the tablet.

If you can't use your Gmail, you need to go into your account on the PC and make sure that 2 step verification is disabled as mentioned above. The only other option is a hard reset after you attempt with your Google Account again.

I know the pattern, but I was playing with it by doing the wrong pattern so it has a login page, but to login I need to access the WiFi, yet how can I access it without unlocking it?

What should I do? please help me

Oh no no no! Perform a soft reset on your device by removing the battery for a minute or two. Then power the device back on and try the correct pattern. If you can't login still then you will have to hard reset because there is no way to turn on the WiFi with a locked screen.

Your Google Account is not working because you have no WiFi or data enabled. This means you will have to hard reset the device. Sorry.
