Does the WiFi router have SSID? Did it ever connect to other WiFi Access Point before? If not some say to set the Tab on Static IP and configure the router to allow the Tab's MAC address. Hope it helps.

Have a Trio Stealth -10 wont connect to the WiFi


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.

Hope this helps.

Ok I asked the question three days ago why can I get on a free wifi connection with my phone but not my tablet


The free Wi Fi router may have run out of IP leases on its DHCP server just when you were trying to connect the tablet. If the leases are as an example say one week long then if lots of people connect to the free wi fi they get a lease for one week. So if the device comes back within the week it already has an IP address assigned to it and works. If a new device comes along it has to ask the DHCP server via the WI FI to assign it an IP address. If all available IP addresses are leased from the WI FI router the device will not get assigned an ip address. Would suggest trying to connect the Tablet on another Wi FI system to test it works.
I had this happen on my mobile phone when I was in Surfers Paradise in a Coffee shop and suspected the lease time on the WI FI router was too long for the amount of short term customers using the coffee shop. (the staff had no idea on why the Wi FI was not working so it would have been pointless to try and explain this concept to them and how to change the lease time on the dhcp server) Also there is a limit to the simultaneous number of users on a Wi Fi frequency on one access point . Unless the WI FI uses multiple WI FI access points.

How do I connect to wi-fi?


To start you need to check you are entering the right password! The password is the one for the WiFi! Is it written on a card or on the router, it will be case sensitive!

My Samsung tablet wll not let me load Facebook newsfeed.I can not log in to Google. It does let me access games


Make sure the wifi/3g is turned on and connected to a network with internet access. You might need to refresh your router and modem as my Galaxy Tab sometimes gets messed up if I log on to another wifi network away from home. i.e. McDonalds/Pizza Hut etc. I may be connected to my wifi, but my tablet doesn't have a correct IP address if it has one at all. The internet speed can be a factor as games don't use a much bandwidth as apps like Google and Facebook.

4.1 jellybean keeps searching for IP address. Will not connect. All apple products connect fine


This is the result of a bug in Android 4.1, you'll have to manually assign an IP address to your Android device.
Instructions on how to do this are available here:

Wifi connection/ IP address unavailable


I would guess your wifi broke.. but you can always ... try wifi elsewhere to verify... if it works then you need to manually connect to your wifi... I would attempt to get your Ip off the working one and copy the same IP and DNS for your wifi... since it's a tablet I would just reset it to factory settings if it just is stuck... you can back up your files VIA google or BUMP app
