Question about Tablets & eReaders

No internet connection

My laptop does not connect to the internet. It first happened at school when it would connect to the school's network but not to the internet. I then tried it through a dialup connection, which dials and claims to be connected at a blazing 31 kps, but will not open web pages or perform other functions such as liveupdate from symantec. It has always worked before and the change was quite sudden.

Re: No internet connection

I have a similar issue...
I have a Toshiba Satellite R10 Model PSR10C-AN303E Laptop. I had lost the screen (went blank) last year. After googling I fixed the problem by opening the laptop and plugging backin the wires that came uplugged after the screen was repetitavely turned in the wrong direction. I was not able, however, to fix the "WEAK WIFI". The laptop work when plugged directly into router and is really weak wirelessly even if quite close to wireless router (its in the same room). I thought i would bypass the problem and but a wireless plug in, but that didnt make it any better. Can anyone point me in the right direction. thanks martina <>

Where can I get an I.p. address for my tablet . Im not sure what happened , I put it back to factory settings and after that there was no ip address. Please help?

What most likely happened is when you factory reset the device, the wireless setup that you use to connect to the Internet was reset as well. You need to go into the wireless setup area and look for networks to connect to. The one that you use regularly (assuming you are where you use the device), should be among those listed. You then tell the device to connect to the network. This is where the device will ask you for the network password if it is a secure network (and most are). Once you input the password, then the network router will assign an IP address to the device and connect it to the network. After that you can access the Internet normally. If you don't know or forgot the network password, someone in the household (or business) should be able to provide it so long as you are authorized to connect.

How do I connect my Nexbook 8 to the internet on my laptop

You connect your Nextbook to YOUR WiFI HOME NETWORK (not the Internet) FROM THE NEXTBOOK, not from the laptop. On your Nextbook, go to Settings then Wi-Fi. If your Nextbook is already connected to your WiFi home network you will see the network's name there and you are done. If it is not connected, a list of available WiFi networks appears. Tap on the name of your home network and it will connect to it. If your network is password-protected, you will be asked to enter it.

Internet suddenly stopped working

The battery saver app may turn off the network connection on the tablet once it detects a period of network inactivity in order to save battery power. When that happens, re-establish the network connection on your tablet.

Nextbook tablet help

you need to find the network connections icon, and open the wireless manager. WiFi access is free at Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, libraries, schools, etc. Read the manual on how to find the wireless provider icons and connect to them.

How to I install the internet to my cobyMID7016? I had it working at one point, but now it will not load to my coby?
on this page you will find almost all answers for your questions related with the tablet ..(under internet tablets sector )
The issue in your case it is the internet connection itself ..either the wireless network you used it is not working anymore or not on (if you use a router ) ..or simply you reset the tablet and you need to make the connection again ..Just open the internet connections ..(wireless card 0 ..and select to scan for networks ...and when you find your network ti ..and than click connect ..This should connect it right the way ..
Also check if your internet network may need your mac address for to let you connect ..(this happens on the networks having the access restricted by the Mac address..)
to get it follow these :
  1. Click on Settings.
  2. Click on Wireless & Networks.
  3. Click on Wi-Fi Settings.
  4. Click the MENU button, located on the side of the unit.
  5. Click on "Advanced".
  6. Your MAC address will appear in the Advance Menu ..
same way to get to the connection for to activate just open wifi connections ..

My new tablet will not connect to internet. i have the usb plugged into mt laptop. i do not have a wireless router?

open network connections on your laptop and select both the wireless adapter AND the internet connection adapter in there and right click on them and click bridge connections. Then go into the network setup wizard (XP) or network and sharing center and click connect to a network and choose adhoc connection. then open wireless settings on the coby kyros and connect to the adhoc connection on your laptop. You should then be able to connect to the internet on it

I want to start inter net from my laptop what to do

Hello Punitrava, Hi, you can connect to the internet several ways, here are the common ones. 1. Via a free WIFI hotspot, find a WIFI area like in malls or coffee shops and enable you WIFI connection on your laptop. after enable the laptop detects the wireless connection and simply connect. 2. Via a USB modem, inquire about this on your wireless telephone company. 3. Via the Local Area Network like computer shops, insert any available LAN cable on your LAN connection, you need to consult the LAN administrator. 5. Via a DSL connection, just plug in the LAN cable from a DSL to your laptop. you need a DSL/internet account from your telephone company.

My Kindle will reconize the network but says the password is invalid but if it was then my laptop would not be able to connect to the Internet. ? Can you solve this mystery for me? This is the first...

I am not familiar with the kindle, however your premis, " but if it was then my laptop would not be able to connect to the Internet. ?" is not exactly correct. When your network was set up someone put a password in to protect your network from having unauthorized connections to it. That password is needed by every computer that has a network card. Someone added that password to your laptop, but if I were to come into your house (invited of course) my computer would see your network name, but I would not be able to access it untill you told me your password and I entered it into my network access. What your kindle is telling you is that you must put that password into its network card, and after that it will remember it just like your laptop. Now if you were to take your kindle to McDonalds, it would not need a password and would connect up. This is because McDonalds operates an "OPEN" network that does not have a password and welcomes everybody to connect up. Remember when you use the McDonalds "OPEN" network, your session would be available to any one that wanted to snoop, and could capture what you wrote including paswords to banks, other networks etc.

My laptop wont connect to the connects to the router but then wont connect to the internet and its not the router or modem wont connect to a wired connection either

I would hook your laptop up directly to your broadband modem and bypass your router to rule it out. Plug the network cable from your modem into your laptop. Unplug the power on your broadband modem and plug it back in. Restart your laptop and see if you get on-line.

If you can...your router is the issue. If you cannot....I would check with your internet service provider before troubleshooting further.
