How do I stay connected to the Internet when I leave my house?


You have a WiFi device that must send/receive signals from your home wireless system. That generally doesn't extend much out of the home. You need to find a free wifi zone or kupgrade to an iPad with cellular service that connects you like a built-in phone.

I have got acer iconia one 7 and just turned it on. When i go to connect to wifi by sliding it across at top, nothing happens just says'to see available networks turn wifi on?! its not finding any...


You have to turn on the wi-fi connection on the tablet.

Go to settings and turn on wi-fi.

Then go and look at the connections displayed.

Pick which one you want to log on to and enter the appropriate password.

Then you use the internet.

I can not connect to the internet with my zeepad. I bought both of my daughters the same model tablet and they can get on the internet with their tablets.


Most tablets connect to the internet through WIFI. Only a few can use SIM card to connect through 3G or 4G data connection. For WIFI connection, you must have a WIFI router at home. You will normally password-protect the WIFI rounter. To connect the tablet to the internet through the WIFI-router that is in operation, you will configure its WIFI settings to match the router's password. This will be done by going to tablet's Setting, turn on WIFI, click on your router in the list of detected routers, enter the password when prompted. Ensure that Connected is shown against your router. You can then browse the internet.

It says that I have internet but cant get on the internet


Do you try to connect to the Internet when at home or away from home ? At home, you need to have a wireless (WiFi) network to connect your tablet to and then access the Internet from your tablet. Away from home you need to find an OPEN WiFi network (usually in public places such as coffee shops, bookstores, etc) to connect to. Or you can get an USB mobile/cellular modem from your cellular provider to attach to the USB port on your tablet and access the Internet at home and/or away from home (this option will cost you money). You also need to install on your tablet apps that will access the Internet (browsers, Pandora, Youtube, etc.).

I am trying to connect my tablet to my home network, but it isn't connecting... how do I fix this?


If your WiFi is ON then the station ID should be showing when you look for a wifi signal with your tablet.
You should configure the Access Point with a new password and then attempt to log in with that new password.
You may need to uninstall the driver for the wifi on your tablet and re-install it using a new driver.

No data plan on my chromosomes tablet help


You will need to connect the tablet to wifi. This is generally offered free at most fast food restaurants and libraries, or if you have internet at home, you can install a wireless router and use your tablet with your home wifi.

How to I put data onto my tablet when I don't have wifi


You don't need internet, to put data on a tablet (or on a computer) entering data, is typing a note, or making a picture. Then save it. That is how data becomes data. But if you want to receive data from the internet, most tablets need a wireless connection. And unless you have a hotspot close to home, the only way would be to visit a Starbucks or McDonald, where they offer free WiFi, while you are consuming there.
More and more firms offer free WiFi, when you are visiting them.
If you want WIFi at home, you first need an internet connection. If you already have an internet connection for a computer, you could buy a wireless router and connect it to the same router you already use for the computer. If you don't have an internet connection, you should get one. Most providers, now offer routers with WiFi and cable connection.
Sometimes if you have a smart phone, with internet connection, you can setup our phone as a hotspot for your tablet. But some providers try to block that.

And soem tablets do have a possibility (they cost more) to insert a sim card. For those you goto a provider and arrange a data plan for the tablet.

I hope this helps. Make sure you don't have a WiFi router, before you buy one.

I DONT HAVE INTERNET ON MY HTC JETSTREAM TABLET BECAUSE IT WILL NOT HOLD THE CONNECTION WITH THE HOME WIFI. CAN YOU HELP, PLEASE?undefined


How long has your tablet been turned on without rebooting it? Tablets are just like computers, they need to be rebooted every so often or they "forget" how to do certain things, and wi-fi is one of them, in my experience. Turn off your tablet, let it sit for a minute, then turn it back on again. This should help. If not, check under Settings to make sure someone hasn't accidentally turned off the Wi-Fi button or put the tablet in Airplane mode - both of these things will effectively keep your tablet from connecting. I would try rebooting first.

My internet tablet keeps saying network problem when i try connecting to wifi


Please check your password and see the strength of the WI-Fi in your area. If this a wifi of your home wireless modem then check the modem and reset accordingly. switch off power for some time and restart.
If not check your tablet on another wifi to confirm this or if the configuration has gone off from the settings.
make sure that your password and the network is connected as seen on the lower taskbar .
