I can connect to wifi routers and browse the internet but only for a couple of minutes then the whole device shuts down. I have a full battery charge. The phone is about a year old and can hold a charge of a few days with the phone on. However, I can use the wifi and browse the internet if I have the power cord plugged into the device.

Are you sure of Wifi password is correct?
if so, 1st; try restarting your ipad by holding down power/sleep button untill it show "Slide to shut down" leave it off for 10 seconds & then re-open it.enter the Wifi -password, sometimes this step works.
2nd solution ; try resetting your iPad network settings, it will not affect your ipad in any thing except it will forget all entered passwords for any wifi you have already connected before. go to General from Setting, choose resett, and inside only reset network setting, shut down ipad & try to connect to the wifi again. Hope this solution work for you. Also you may try shutting down & opening your router again after 10 seconds while off. Good Luck.
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.
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.
Try resetting your wireless router. Power cycle it through.

To powercycle your home network:
Turn off the router by unplugging it. If you have a modem and router in one device, turn it off then proceed to step 3.
Turn off the DSL or cable modem for three minutes.
Note: Some modems are equipped with a backup battery. If your modem have one, please remove the backup battery to completely turn off your modem. For common cable modems equipped with backup batteries, please see Performing a full reset of cable modem with battery backup
Turn off all computers attached to your network.
Turn on the DSL or cable modem first and let it boot. Let it complete its connection to your ISP before proceeding to the next step. One of the indications that the modem have completed its connection is by seeing a green light on the modem. If you have a modem and router in one device, proceed to step 6 after it connects to your ISP.
Once the modem completes the connection to your ISP, plug in the router. Let it complete its power on test before proceeding to the next step.
Restart your computers.
Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?
Try going to your network connections, double clicking the wireless connection, then double clicking on TCI/IP Protocol. Make sure that everything is set up to detect settings automatically. If this doesn't work, try unplugging your router for at least 15 minutes then plugging it back in.
