Is the connection secured? If so, you will need the WEP key to gain access.

My tablet is saying i am offline and will not connect to Wi-fi


Firstly Check if your WIFI router is working by accessing the WIFI connection from another computer, tablet or phone.

If it does, then use the same WiFi connection settings that it has on your ARCHOS.

You could also try connecting your ARCHOS to a friend's WiFi network and if this works, change your access point parameters to similar ones.

OTHER TROUBLESHOOTING OPTIONS:
1. Check your WiFi router/modem documentation to see if it has a pairing button that needs to be pressed. Some modems have such a button that must be pressed the very first time you try to make a WiFi connection with a new device.

2. If you have to enter a password (a security code of type WEP or WPA) be very careful that you do not confuse a 1 and I (one and letter "I"), a 0 and O (zero and letter "O"), or U and V. These are common mistakes.

3. When entering a security code for your WiFi access, check the box "Show Password" which will allow you to see exactly what you are typing in. This will avoid any mistakes.

4. Some access points use what is known as MAC filtering. That means, the WiFi access point has a list of access numbers (every hardware device has a unique MAC number) which are the only ones allowed to access to the WiFi point. The person managing the WiFi modem/router should shut off this MAC filtering system to see if this solves the problem. It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security. If you must use it, you can find your device's specific MAC address by going to Settings >Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced. It will look something like 00:16:dc:5e:9e:39.

5. Try temporarily shutting off the encryption system of your WiFi router/modem to see if the problem has to do with the encryption system you are using. The preferred encryption system is the WPA2.

I was given Netflix (stream-in) for a gift, but can not get it to come onto our tv. Please help.


Your TV must be a 'smart' TV i.e. it should have software enabling it to connect to the internet and access features such as Netflix. If you don't have a 'smart' TV then you can purchase a set top box which can be connected to your TV and will allow you to access on-line services such as Netflix. If you have a 'smart' TV then you still need to connect it to your internet router, either with an Ethernet cable or via WiFi if the TV has WiFi built in (or you can buy a WiFi adapter for the TV). If you connect with an Ethernet cable then the TV will connect to your router (and internet) with no further setup. If you use WiFi then you will need to access the WiFi settings menu on the TV and configure the settings for your router.

The Acer Aspire netbook I bought has a switch on it to connect to the WiFi Internet G. If you want to use the dongle to communicate on the Internet, then first try to use the built in Wifi to install the driver for it.

Here?s the overview: My only computer is a laptop. I had Comcast internet connected to a Linksys wireless router; I cancelled Comcast and bought an AT&T 3G Sierra Wireless card. There?s an HP...


Generally all laptops with wireless built in have a shutoff button for the wifi connection. While you need the internet turn the wifi off. When you need to print, turn the wifi on, print then turn it off. It is not the best solution, but it should be a short term work-around. The other option is to attach the printer to your laptop with a cable (usb or otherwise). Turn the wifi off. Add more info to your request if this does not solve your problem,

If it solves the problem, leave feedback please.

Changed from AT&T to a cable company for DSL. Trying to set up


You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

If you havea WiFi router that you use for internet then you can do this very easily by adding your WiFi settings to Wii in settings. This will also allow you to get Wii software updates and use the Store where you can download games etc.

Your friend will also have to have a WiFi router in his home with internet access and he'll also have to add those settings to the Wii.

EOC-3220 connects but no internet access


What are you using for Internet connects? do you have the Access point connected to a Router. or is it connected to the Cable or DSL modem. I will need more information to complete this. If you have a router is is set to give an IP address or do you have a static IP? If it is set to give a Dynamic ip change the access point to recieve ip address from router and same with computer. If your connected directly to the Modem with the access point and you only have one IP address it will be used by the access point and not allow the computer to connect.
for more help please provide your internet (DSL, T1, CABLE) if you have router,  how it provides IP, and how access point is connected to it.
