How do I find my SSID?

The SSID of a wireless network is determined by the wireless access point (AP) that you are using. Some AP's have a label on the bottom that give the SSID and Key for that particular network. Some AP's broadcast the SSID and that can be read off the air when you attempt to connect. Those are the 'available' networks that show up in the wireless network list. If you are trying to connect to a network that is not your own, you need to get the connection data, including the SSID and network key, from the person providing the network. There are open networks that broadcast their SSID and don't require any key, but those networks are not secure and data transmitted on them can be stolen.

How do get wi-fy on my tablet?

It's a good idea to access Wi-Fi whenever possible to avoid data charges. After you've activated the Android tablet's Wi-Fi radio, you can connect to an available wireless network. Obey these steps:
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Choose Wi-Fi.On some Samsung tablets, you find the Wi-Fi item on the Connections tab. Choose Wi-Fi to view a list of available Wi-Fi networks on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, the list shows up full screen.
  3. Choose a wireless network from the list.When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding Wi-Fi access from your current location.
  4. If prompted, type the network password.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
  5. Touch the Connect button.
    The network is connected immediately. If not, try the password again.
When the tablet is connected to a wireless network, you see the Wi-Fi Connected status icon. This icon indicates that the tablet's Wi-Fi is on, connected, and communicating with a Wi-Fi network.
Some wireless networks don't broadcast their names, which adds security but also makes connecting more difficult. In those cases, touch the Add icon. This icon might also be labeled Add Wi-Fi or Manually Connect. To make the connection, type the network name, or SSID, and choose the type of security.
You also need the password, if one is used. You can obtain this information from the girl with the pink hair who sold you coffee or from whoever is in charge of the wireless network at your location.
  • Not every wireless network has a password. Still:
  • Be careful when connecting to a non-password-protected network. It's possible that the Bad Guys can monitor such a network, stealing passwords and other information.
  • Some public networks are open to anyone, but you have to use the web browser app to find a login web page that lets you access the network: Simply browse to any page on the Internet, and the login web page shows up.
  • The Android tablet automatically remembers every Wi-Fi network it has ever been connected to and automatically reconnects upon finding the same network again.
  • To disconnect from a Wi-Fi network, simply turn off Wi-Fi.
  • Use Wi-Fi whenever you plan to remain in one location for a while. Unlike a mobile data network, a Wi-Fi network's broadcast signal has a limited range. If you wander too far away, your tablet loses the signal and is disconnected.

Network Connections

I'll give you a generalized answer because I am not familiar with the tablet you are using. The the principle is the same for all wireless devices. Go to their version of SETUP for wireless networks (for example, on the IPAD it looks like a gear symbol) and select the right network which will be chosen from a list they provide of nearby networks. You need to know the name of the network you're trying to get on. Don't try to type it. Select it from the list of available networks. When you do, it will most probably ask for the network password or key which you need. If you don't know it, then you need to find it. Sometimes it is on the base of the modem. Type it in carefully noting the caps and don't mix up zeroes and letter O, etc. It sounds like a password problem you are having so do this carefully. If it does not work, and If you use the network for your phone also, you can try logging the phone off the network and then logging back on with the password you think is right to confirm if it is a password problem but... if the password you are trying is wrong, you will now not be able to get your phone back on the network until you find the right password. Then you will also know how to fix the tablet log on as well. Hope that helps.

Cant connect to Wifi

To connect to secure wifi you need the password for the wifi router you are trying to connect to. You cannot just connect to a secure network unless you have that password - the owner of the router will have the password.

If it use to work on your network and you haven't changed any router settings. You can try and "forget" your connection. Go into settings > wireless and your network should be listed.

I cant get my tablet to connect to wifi

Android tablets, unlike Android phones, don't require mobile phone service or a contract with a mobile phone company, and several models use Wi-Fi for network connectivity. The Android 3.0 operating system, known as Honeycomb, is designed specifically for tablets, and has the same features for Wi-Fi connections that are available with earlier versions of Android. Android tablets support wireless connections encrypted by both WEP and the more-secure WPA.

Tap the "Apps" menu on the tablet screen. Touch "Settings." Touch "Wireless and Networks" and select "Wi-Fi Settings." Tap the "Wi-Fi" box to turn on Wi-Fi. The Android tablet scans for available Wi-Fi networks and displays them on-screen under "Wi-Fi Networks." Tap an available Wi-Fi network. Touch "Connect" if it is unsecured, or enter the password or passcode for the encrypted connection.
Tap "Connect."

Internet not connecting

  • Under settings on the tablet enable the wireless radio.
  • Once enabled you should get a list of available networks, select yours.
  • Enter any password you have.
  • If you get an authentication failed message and you know your password is correct, try disabling security on your network and try again. Some tablets have a problem with security especially those running ICS.

I have an hp tablet PC touch screen and I can't conected to the wireless at home. Can you help me

You'll want to connect with an ethernet cable to your router and open the configuration page (usually or something similar - check your instructions) using your web browser. Check your instructions for default username and password. Once in the router configuration2_bing.gif utility, you'll have the opportunity to set your network name (SSID) and select the security you want. WPA is best (more secure than WEP, which is easily hacked). Enter your security passkey/phrase and save your configuration. Go to your wireless computer, search for available networks, find your SSID, click to connect, enter your passphrase and you should be good to go.

p.s. make sure that the router is broadcasting a compatible version that your wireless network adapter can accept: i.e. a computer with a wireless b/g network adapter can not connect to a wireless N network. If this is the problem, go into your router setup and change it to broadcast in b/g/n.

Did this resolve your issue? If so, please rate it. ty.

Can't connect with internet . I think it has the wrong WEP key.

If you think you don't have the right key, You can hold the reset button in on the router for 45 seconds and this will reset the wireless security, you will then have to connect the router to a computer so you can open a web browser window and reset wireless security setting for your network.
