Are you trying to just connect to wifi to access a local network or are you trying to access the internet? If you just want to connect to a local network, maybe to access other devices on the network, you would need a router broadcasting the network that all the devices connect to. If you are only trying to get access to the internet, consider purchasing a hot spot device. It will provide cellular type service and will broadcast a wifi signal that you can connect your tablet or other devices to for internet access. Hot spots will cost you a monthly fee for the service and you will have to purchase the device itself. Another possibility is to use your cell phone as a hot spot and tether the tablet to it. Just remember whatever data you use on your tablet will be charged to your data plan on your cell phone. On my nexus 5x phone, it's fairly easy to turn on (settings, under wireless and networks select more, select tethering and portable hotspot, turn on portable wifi hotspot, set a password if you want to). Once turned on, the phone will broadcast a signal that you can connect other devices to for internet access. Some cellular providers don't allow tethering. If that is the case with yours there are some apps that will still allow you to set up tethering such as AndroidTethering or Easy Tether. In the past, I've had some trouble connecting wirelessly using the apps and found that using USB tether options worked better for me.
Can't connect to Internet through WiFi on Android Tablet/Phone. ... 4.Try to turn off/on Wi-Fi on the device. Turn off Wi-Fi first, [Settings]>>[Wi-Fi] >>[OFF]. Then turn on Wi-Fi, [Settings]>>[Wi-Fi]>>[ON].
Is wifi turned on on the tablet? If not, go to Settings>Wifi and turn it on. The device should then automatically scan for networks.
If you are able to connect to your network but then cannot actually get to the Internet you may just need to restart your router. You might get something like "Obtaining IP address" for a long time and then get "Limited" connection. Correcting this may be just a matter of unplugging it for about a minute then plug it back in. Wait 4-5 minutes for the router to boot up completely then try connecting again. Some routers are sensitive to new devices. When I had AT&T Uverse router I would have to restart it every time I tried to add a new wifi device.
If it is your WiFi, unplug everything involved with it for 30 seconds and then plug it all back in.
Make sure wifi is turned on.
Make sure that you are trying to connect to a WiFi signal that you know you can connect to. Not all WiFi signals are ones we can connect to with our tablets, phones, and computers. Try connecting to another signal, or try having another device connect to the one you can't connect to to see if it is a device trouble, or an individual WiFi signal issue.
An "authentication problem" means that that the wifi does not accept the wifi password that the device is providing, or that its MAC address may be on the exception list, not allowing it to connect. Verify that the tablet is using the proper wifi password for the system you are trying to connect to, and that you are using the same wifi security (WEP/WPA/WPA2) on the tablet that the wifi is using.
It could be because of the amount of devices that are connected to your wifi. Too many devices could put a lot of weight on your bandwith causing the wifi itsself to become slower. Disconnect any devices using wifi in your home that dont need to be on every day and try reseting your modem or router. You could also use a usb cord to get a more direct connection or you might have to upgrade to a faster wifi company. If the problem still continues take your device back and get it fixed, call the number in the troubleshooting guide, or visit the nextbook website and make sure you have your device registered.
not to be mean but often times with those little cheap tablets (I have had a few) the wifi is picky due to cheep part and software(the device).here are some common problems.Does it support the type of network your trying to connect to?is your network key too long? some device dont like itis you network name too long? is your router blocking access?(firewalls, filters,port forwarding, client limits)are you with in 10 feet of the router, wifi on tablet can be limiteddo other device connect to the internet via this methoddo you even have a wireless network of you own?make sure wifi is powered on?hard reset devicethe list of what the issue could be is infinite-Good Luck.
