Android Tablet Troubleshooting Problem: Cant connect to WIFI

More often than not it is as simple as not entering the correct password.

Most connections are encrypted so IT IS MOST LIKELY NOT YOUR TABLET,  IT IS YOUR ROUTER CONFIGURATION OR USER ERROR

Every WIFI hot spot is different.  Some Rely on Encrypted passwords some on different security configurations. There is no ONE set way all of them require different steps to work with ANY TABLET or PHONE. The first thing you need is patience, connecting to a hot spot can be frustrating so follow these instructions and if all else fails a quick call to your Internet service provider or system administrator and they will walk you through it


WiFi is a wireless networking technology that can provide Internet access at distances of up to 100 meters, depending on the Wi-Fi router and your surroundings.
To use Wi-Fi on your tablet, you connect to a wireless access point, or “hotspot.” Some hotspots are open and you can simply connect to them. Others implement security features, so you must configure your tablet so it can connect to them.
There are numerous systems for securing Wi-Fi connections, including some that rely on secure certificates or other schemes to ensure that only authorized users can connect.
Turn off Wi-Fi when you’re not using it, to extend the life of your battery between charges. You can also set whether you want to disconnect from Wi-Fi networks when your tablet is sleeping.
The Status bar displays icons that indicate Wi-Fi status.
Network status icons turn blue if you have a Google Account added to your tablet and the tablet is connected to Google services, for syncing your Gmail, Calendar events, contacts, for backing up your settings, and so on. If you don’t have a Google Account or if, for example, you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network that is not connected to the Internet, the network icons are gray.

  1. Tap >Manage System Settings
  2. Tap> Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings
