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.

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.

Maybe try going to the router settings and changing the security settings. See if turning off wifi password solves the problem then turn it back on.

Hi. I've recently acquired a Lenovo Thinkpad X41 tablet PC (1866-CRG version) but unable to work out how to turn on the wifi - there doesn't seem to be a function-key or switch assigned for that...


I had the same issue when i first got my used x41, i downloaded Intel Pro/Wireless 2915ABG Network connection driver onto external drive then installed onto cdrive. Im no pro so hope it helps..

How do I log onto google with my galaxy tab


If you're referring to accessing your Google Account, you need to add your Google credentials upon signing in the first time with your Tablet.

If you are still having trouble with this, follow these steps: App Drawer > Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Enter in your credentials.

If you're referring to accessing Google like you would on a computer, just open the app drawer and use the Browser icon, then type your desired destination into the address bar. You must be connected to a WiFi or 3G connection to access the Internet though.
