I can not connect wirelessly


I have had this problem before and I had to go under WiFi settings and forget my WiFi. I let it scan again for service and reentered my WiFi network information. This worked for me most of the time. However, it could be your WiFi itself. Can you connect anything else to your WiFi?

A WiFi connection potensWL has popped up on my wifi settings. I do not know what this is but want to delete it. How do i do it? I have a Samsung Galaxy tab 2.


Hi
To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet will remember the settings until told to forget them. To do this, tap on the connection in >Settings >Wireless and networks and ou will be given 3 options, Connect, Forget, Cancel. You need "Forget".
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
It is worth remembering that your tablet will always notify you (via Wireless and Network settings) of all wireless networks that are within ita range.
Cheers

I just bought a ipad today and cannot get it to get on to safari it is not connected to the internet


The information included with your question says that you have a 3G iPad, but it does not indicate that you have WiFi. If you have WiFi, touch the Settings app and, if WiFi appears, make sure that you are logged into a local WiFi network. If you have a 3G-only iPad, you must arrange for 3G service with your current, or another, phone provider. 3G service is considerably slower, and more expensive, than WiFi.

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.

To many patten attempts


  1. With the Samsung Galaxy TAB turned off, press and hold the VOLUME Down button, and then briefly press the POWER button.
Note: If you see "Downloading" on the screen with an Android shoveling you pressed the wrong Volume key. Remove and reinsert the battery and try again.

Can I download samsung kies to my tablet?


The Galaxy Tab comes with Android version 2.2 (Froyo), this version of the Android OS comes with the ability to work as a WiFi hotspot for up to 5 devices built in. This lets you share your Tab's 3G connection out to other devices over Wifi.
Or you can download SAMSUNG Kies and use Tablet as modem. There is no official SAMSUNG Kies for USA yet but you can get European version from Samsung website
