Assuming you're trying to connect via wireless router. If you connect, but then aren't able to get to the Internet. I would something is wrong between the router to the modem to the wall (DSL/Cable modem) rather then your tablet device. You can connect your device to your router and you device will show it has a wifi connection, but beyond the router something may be amiss. Try seeing what you get from another device like computer or laptop. That might get you closer to your actual issue,

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.

Is there a DHCP server running? Like a router with DHCP enabled? How does your laptop connect? do you have a fixed IP address for the computers/laptops? What kind of encription are you using ? WPA ? WEP ? none ? Set a fixed IP within the same range and try again.

SOURCE: my android tablet is "frozen". Will turn on but

has anything been deleted from it when it has been plugged into a computer or has anything been deleted from the device itself from its root directory? if not and its gone like that by itself, it could be corrupted software or a missing root file which is usually bad at first, now what i know about some tablets is if it wont work theres a recovery file usually internally but this is in some tablets only that ive read about, i also have one but havent needed to try to restore it and it can be done from an engineering mode, this is possable by pressing the power button and another button like the home button at the same time once the unit is off untill it turns back on with options, but as for some models im not sure of but i will have to look this up at some stage as i am working on tablets at this time so unless you know what you are doing i wouldnt attempt it, once i have gotten through some tablets ill be able to give a better resolution on this subject with others. the advice ive given wont work for all as pressing power and home will start different options up on different tablets and versions.

I have been using wi-fi printing on Samsung Galaxy 8.4 Tablet & now I'm unable to get my tablet to print.


Your printer may have changed it's IP address. This is a common occurrence on wireless networks. You should be able to get the new IP (to configure your tablet) by doing this on your printer: Go to the Home Screen --> Setup, then touch Reports and then select Network Configuration to see all of the printer's network details.

How do I get a new IP address for my next book android 4.0 tablet it is saying unavailable


Most Android devices have an IP address only when they have connected to a router, usually by wi-fi (other times it isn't needed).

When connected go to the Settings menu, tap Wi-fi, then tap the name of the network you are using. The device IP address should be listed .

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!

Connect to ipad


You don't assign an IP address to your iPad, it has one assigned to it by your router.

Open the Settings app on your iPad. Make sure Airplane Mode is OFF. Tap Wi-Fi. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch is ON, Ask to Join Networks is ON. Your in-home wi-fi network should be visible in the list titled Choose a Network.... Tap its name and provide the network password required by your router.

If you don't see your local router listed, it may not be properly configured.
