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.

How can I extend my home internet network?


Yes you can connect the LAN ports with a network cable from your 3G router to one of your old router LAN ports
Before connecting the 2nd router:
Check it does not have a conflicting IP.
Check it is in the same subnet
ie if 3G router is 192.168.0.1
Set old router to 192.168.0.10
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway is 192.168.0.1
DNS 192.168.0.1

Set DHCP off on 2nd router.
Set WIFI to Same SSID, same password and authentication
ensure it is on a different channel though.(not automatic on either)

Finally just to make sure remove any WAN settings from your router, any old ADSL config etc so that it doesnt think it is a gateway.

No wifi and lan light


Sometimes, you may just need to update the drivers for your adapter, suggests PC Mech. If you cannot connect to a home network, move your wireless usb wifi adapter closer to the router. Other radio frequencies, such as cellphones and microwaves, can interfere with wireless signals.

The phone used to connect to the internet with wifi and 3G. Now it only works with 3G. It sees the wifi network, but says that it cannot connect to this network. It does this on every network I have tried...


If your looking to use only wifi at times. You need to go into the setting and shut off the 3g data and have only the wifi option active.

Cellular data over rules wifi at all times. That's their little trick at getting you to use up all your data plan.

Here's the steps:

1. Go to Settings
2. Scroll to Network
3. Cellular Data - slid to OFF
4. Tap General on the top left
5. Tap Settings on the top left
6. Scroll up to Wifi and tap
7. Make sure Wifi is on and finding networks.
(Note: Only networks without the lock are public networks unless you know the pass code to log on)
8. Make sure Ask To Join Networks is to OFF
9. Click the arrow blue arrow on the network you connect too and make sure HTTP Proxy is set to OFF
10. You should Connect just fine

To reverse this and go back to Cellular data. Follow instructions 1 - 5 except you wanna turn Cellular Data back On.

Cannot connect samsung Galaxy tab to internet


Your question is very messy. I don't understand what are you trying to say.

Connecting to Internet need WiFi (your home wifi through your router, cafe wifi hotspot, etc) or GPRS (data connect through your carrier/SIM, like 3G, 2G, HSDPA, Edge).

For WiFi, normally you'll need a security key.

For GPRS, you'll need some settings from your carrier.

My Iphone 3GS wifi is having problems. The wifi search circles comes up but it doesn't give me options for networks to be picked. And my home wifi is perfectly fine. how do i get this fixed? . My wifi is...


I would try a software restore first. If that doesn't fix it bring it to Apple. If Apple doesn't replace it for you, you can find the logic board at iPhone 3GS Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at iPhone Repair Guide.

Iphone 3G-S will not connnect to BT Home Hub 2.0


First, Can your 3GS connect on ant other Wi-Fi? If so the issue is specific to configuration on either iPhone or BT Home Hub.
Second, Does BT Home Hub configured for any kind of mac-address security? Check that, if it does either remove it or add the iphone mac-address, you can find the iphone mac address under network setting.
Third, Does Home Hub have limit on number of devices that can connect to it, some do. check that and make sure that you increase the limit or just remove the restriction altogether.
Fourth, IS BT Home Hub Wep enabled? If so the password/key you are entring on your iPhone must be exactlythe same. Or just remove the wep encryption to see if your iphone 3GS can connect.
Fifth, If your old 3G is able to connect to your BT Home Hub, then just make sure you are not FAT fingering the keys and entering a different key.
