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.

Hi, I am Steve, lets help solve your issue.
I am afraid the information you have been given is completely wrong. There is not such thing as plug and play in the android world. Android was initially developed for use on embedded devices and as such had no need to recognise external devices automatically. Version 2.1 (as installed on your device) is now quite old and cannot support it. Even the new version (froyo -2.2) does not support it.


Your device does come with a built in wireless adaptor, so you don't need a USB wireless adaptor.

7 inch irulu tablet keeps kicking me out of my internet wifi, i have to reboot all the time... i have my screen set to stay on always to avoid this, i like the tablet but this is ridicules..HELP


I have to tell you they are cheap Chinese entry level tablets and are grossly unreliable. We had a guy here who went through three in 18 months.

You shouldn't have to reboot to get wifi back. If is it a public wifi spot, getting booted out is intentionally unless you are using it constantly.

If it is home wifi, it may be that your signal strength is weak. Irrespective, buy yourself an Acer, Samsung or iPad.

I already asked the question and then had to get off the computer. The question was how do I stay on the WiFi internet through netgear router. When the WiFi symbol shows I am conneted if I go too Chro


Need to know your signal strength and if you're connected with proper credentials. If the wifi signal is weak, the computer may disconnect to look for a stronger signal. Sometimes ipv6 is the culprit on older computers too. Disable that and use ipv4 only. There are multiple reasons for dropped internet so the more info about your system and the conditions under which the internet is dropped will help in diagnosing the problem without sending you on a wild goose chase.

Dont can enter to internet on my new tablet


To do internet you need:
1. browser
2. wireless internet connection with
2a. login access. (some places don't require this)
Look at the wifi signal indicator. If the signal is too weak the internet won't work.
(Or you may have it turned off. Go to Settings, find WiFi, and make sure it is on.)

Why does my tablet keep saying authentication problem when trying to connect to wifi


Had same problem - said signal weak although strong on other devices, and hung on authenticating.
Cordless phone on base unit was beside wireless router. Moved unit and turned off phone. Problem disappeared, and signal showed strong.
