I just had this same problem - I suspect it may have been a new app I installed that changed some settings.
I fixed mine by going into Settings>Mobile Network settings, then tick "Use packet data". Worth a try.

Can I hot spot this phone to a wi fi


Hi Shelagh, If you're trying to connect to your home Wi-Fi The password is on the back of the modem, Write it down then go into your phone/tablet settings and tap "CONNECTIONS", Then tap on Wi-Fi and make sure it's switched on(should be a button there), Once switched on it should start scanning automatically for networks, but if not then there's a scan button there somewhere. When it finds the modem just tap on it and a small window opens for the password, Type in the pass word tap ok and you're connected... Bellow is a link to a short youtube video explaining pretty much the same thing I said..... I hope this helps..., CHEERS..

Galaxy S6 wifi issue


First, try restarting the Galaxy S6. To do that, hold the power button on the right side of the phone until prompted. Hold it down again to turn the Galaxy S6 back on. It's a simple process but it has been known to dislodge Wi-Fi issues
If that doesn't work, Galaxy S6 users will want to try rebooting the local router if that hasn't been done in awhile. We recommend unplugging the router for a good 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. Users can do the same for the modem as well. Galaxy S6 users might also consider updating the routers firmware. This process will be different depending on make and model. If those simple fixes don't work, it's time to head into the Galaxy S6's settings.
If the Galaxy S6 isn't getting a solid connection, it's time to force the device to forget the Wi-Fi network in question. To do that, head to the desired connection in Settings. On the Galaxy S6, this can be found in the Connections portion of Settings. Once there, select Wi-Fi. Tap on the desired network and select the Forgetoption. Users will then need to reconnect to the Wi-Fi network. Make sure the password is readily available or the device will be locked out.
If that doesn't work, head into Wi-Fi, tap More in the top right corner, and select Advanced. Ensure thatAlways allow scanning is turned on. You'll also want to make sure that Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep is set toAlways.

Cant connect to Wifi


To connect to secure wifi you need the password for the wifi router you are trying to connect to. You cannot just connect to a secure network unless you have that password - the owner of the router will have the password.

MY SONNY ERICSSON X8 WHY I CAN'T GET THRU IN WIFI


To connect to a WLAN via Wi-Fi™:
  1. From the Home screen, find and tap Settings.
  2. Tap Wireless controls > Wi-Fi settings.
  3. Mark the Wi-Fi checkbox. Available Wi-Fi™ networks are displayed in a list under Wi-Fi networks. The available networks may be open or secured. This is indicated by the icon next to the network name.
  4. Tap a Wi-Fi™ network to connect to it. If you are trying to connect to a secured Wi-Fi™ network, you are asked to enter the security key for that Wi-Fi™ network before you can connect to it. The Wi-Fi™ connection is displayed in the status bar once you are connected.
Useful tip:
  • The next time you connect to a Wi-Fi™ network, the phone will remember the security key.
  • To enable Wi-Fi™ network notification of open networks, mark the Network notification checkbox.
  • To connect to another Wi-Fi™ network, just tap another Wi-Fi™ network in the Wi-Fi networks list.
  • To scan for Wi-Fi™ networks manually, press the Menu key and tap Scan. The phone scans for Wi-Fi™ networks and displays them in the Wi-Fi networks section.

Wifi saying unable to scan networks


Hello!
Here are the things you can try for a malfunctioing Wi-Fi on your Galaxy S:
Try turning off your Wi-Fi then turn it on again.
  • Sometimes, this works for me as the Wi-Fi might need a restart so it can try scanning again. You can do so by going to Settings > Wireless and Network > Wi-Fi Settings and ticking the Wi-Fi checkbox.
Turn off your handset then turn it on again.
  • An app that was running on your handset might be messing with your Wi-Fi, so to make all things better, you can restart your handset for a fresh boot. :)
Check if there are actually Wi-Fi networks in your area or the Wi-Fi is too weak.
  • If there aren't any Wi-Fi networks to detect, it can't do anything at all in the first place. Try moving to an area with better Wi-Fi signal.

You can ask me if you have any queries! :) ~azukibean70

Pandigital won't connect to wifi. went to a locaton that had free wifi, no password required and it won't connect


On the top of the tablet is the Wi-Fi & Low Power Button.
Make sure that it is "slid" to the left.

1. Tap Wi-Fi settings to select and connect to a local wireless network.
The device automatically scans and lists local Wi-Fi Networks found.
A indicates secure networks that require login passwords to connect.
2. Tap the desired network to which you want to connect.
If your Wi-Fi broadcast is set as hidden, it won't be found by the auto
scan. Tap Add Network -> enter the network name and key,
-> tap Save.
3. If the network is secure, tap in the password entry field to enter the
Network Password.
4. Tap Connect.
5. Tap < to return to previous screens.
The Wi-Fi symbol on the top of screens indicates the Wi-Fi is connected, otherwise no icon is displayed

If you did all of the above, get a hold of Pandigital
