How do I fix my WiFi cable. And how to disassemble my tablet and make the repair.

after reading this one I now know what im doing for the first of april this year ,(selling wifi cables to all that will buy them ) but let me explain this one too ya , WIFI means wireless connection , it means by definition there is no wire or cable to fix it uses a radio connection , hence the bars you see fluctuation its a signal strength indicator , if the power level is moving a lot then something (preferable metal) is getting between you and wifi base (maybe a wifi router?) I have seen folks selling devices to add to there tablets to increase there wifi range , but I do believe these are a scam and don't work , one thing that does seem to work to increase range some is to remove the wifi protection mode , but I sure don't recommend doing this as this leaves you open to all !!

Can connect to Wi-Fi but not sign in with password

If the password is not being recognized, chances are that it was entered incorrectly. Ensure the proper letters, numbers, characters and capitalization is followed exactly. Also, check to ensure the signal strength is adequate (not just 1 or 2 bars) when trying to connect with the router.

Irulu 7" tablet keeps disconnecting from internet. It's connect for a minute or so and then just drops. Just received replacements for 2 in the mail yesterday. No connection problems with old ones.

How many 'bars' are showing on wi-fi signal strength indicator (presuming you are using wi-fi for internet access)? If the signal strength is low, you could be losing connections that way, or there might be interference on the wi-fi channel that the tablet is using. Try changing channels in your wi-fi setup and see if there is an improvement in the behavior.

Cant get wi fi signal.

Solution 1.Check wireless connection.
The first step of diagnosis have to any other device connected to the same network, ensure the wireless connection is working fine, or verify the settings of your wireless router to correct it.
2.Check your Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep Settings.
Owing to Wi-Fi sleep policy your Wi-Fi connection may be going to get disconnected every now and then.
Tweak this policy to keep your Wi-Fi connection awake.
[Settings] >>[Wi-Fi]>>[Advanced]>> Check [Always] to keep the Wi-Fi on during sleep.
Save changes and exit all the screens. Your Wi-Fi will never get disconnected again due to this policy.
3.Check signal strength of wireless connection.
The performance of a wireless network connection depends in part on signal strength.
You have to connect the Wireless network where the signal strength is strong.
Check Wireless network signal strength icons in notification bar.
4.Try to turn off/on Wi-Fi on the device.
First to turn off Wi-Fi, [Settings]>>[Wi-Fi] >>[turn Wi-Fi to off].
And then to turn on Wi-Fi, [Settings]>>[Wi-Fi]>>[turn Wi-Fi to on].
5.Try to forget network on the device.
Forgetting wireless networks allow your tablet/phone to reset some settings.
[Settings]>>[Wi-Fi]>>Press & hold your[Net Work Name(SSID)]for 2 seconds.
>>Select[Forget Network]>>Re-Connect your wireless networks if it's disconnected.
6.Try to reboot your device.
7.Make sure your firmware is up-to-date.
>>Select[Settings]>>[About tablet]>>[System Firmware Update]>>[Check Update].
8.Try to reset your device.
Note: once RESET was performed, all data, apps, settings and personal information will be deleted after initialization.
Third-party programs might be the major probability of Tablet/Phone instable, suggested to have a full reset for the device if the situation persists.
[Settings]>>[Backup&reset]>>[Factory data reset]
9.Try to other wireless connections.
If steps above were not able to solve internet connection problem still, please try other wireless connections if available, otherwise contact your networking provider to technical support.

Weak wifi reception on my coby 4331 tablet

The solution for this problem depends on how you are using the device. It depends mainly on how thick your walls are and where you placed your wi-fi router. If you can't change the location of your router, I suggest you to get a new, more powerful one. A cheaper solution would be to move, if possible, the router. The thickness and number of walls between the device and the router decrease the signal's strength considerably. You could also install a repeater, though you'll need to place it where the signal is at medium strength, in order to boost it. The repeater should be of the same manufacturer of your router, as it will have 100% compatibility.

I have strong wifi strength but no connection

It sounds like you're in range of a wifi signal, but haven't chosen which network you want your tablet to jump onto. Head over to your settings panel (swipe down from the top, then tap the little cog icon). From settings, make sure you're in the "Wireless and network" tab. Make sure your wifi is turned on (with the green bar below it). To the right, there should be a list of wifi networks you can join. If there's one that has a little padlock icon on it, it means it requires a password (are you at a restaurant or friend's house? - ask them for the wifi password). If it doesn't have the padlock, it's an open network. Does this help?

Best of luck.

Unable to get connected to the internet and the app market

On my Iconia when I see this show up it will be from a low power or a poor wii connection. Basically the signal strength is too low which means the speed drops to the point where everything is timing out before it gets loaded.

There are a couple o causes to check . One is too far from the wifi router.the farther away the lower the signal the slower it goes. You have objects blocking the signal such as steel reinforced safety windows or steel mesh in walls. These can block the signal. I have one are where I'm all of 10 feet away and it will barely connect. I have to move about three feet to the side and get ull strength and speed. The orientation of your tablet can effect i you can use a marginal signal or not. Try aiming the edge with the volume buttons towards the wifi. The antenna is oriented in a way that this will slightly improve the signal. The other thing is that your tablet can be fine but your wii router is having problems with its wifi sections. Certain brands will show more errors and then difficulties in connections in as little as a year old (on some about half that). The Iconia has a rather good wifi ability so I wouldn't blame its hardware but would look at the location orientation etc as I have mentioned.
