I have a Samsung 10" tablet. I am having trouble connecting my cannon PRINTER c/- Wi-Fi. Works sometimes other times takes a long time. Can you help
Sounds like there's too much noise in the signal. This is almost always caused by either too far a distance between the router and the tablet, or the type of construction the signal has to pass through.
As the signal weakens, it introduces drop-outs of signal, (called noise) and forces the table and router to restart the connection procedure all over again. Do this enough and you begin to notice the delay in making a connection.
Simplest way to isolate this, is to try to make a connection with the tablet while you are in the same room with the router. If it connects immediately, its the deteriorating signal quality that's causing the delay.
Couple of fixes, one is to relocate the router to a higher position so it had less metal surrounding or other disruptive factors, or into a different, closer location where the table is being used).
Another possibility in large homes is to add a wireless relay into the system. This receives the signal and rebroadcasts it. (It extends the coverage of the original signal). This can be mounter anywhere where it can receive a good signal from the router and still cut the distance to the tablet in half.
One other option is to buy a new router that has a better signal or operates in a new, higher band and allows faster communications. But construction, the amount of stuff between you and the router will still degrade the signal.
I would try relocating the router to a different position, perhaps higher in the room it's currently in, first.
