Can't connect to wireless

says "obtaining IP address" for few minutes, then quickly flashes to "save secured with ____" then goes back to obtaining IP address for few minutes, then says avoided poor internet connection.  I'm sitting at my desktop using the wireless router with no problems so why can't my Iconia Tab A200 connect?

Re: Can't connect to wireless

Hi,

 

Try hard rest 2-3 times using paper clip,which will restart the tablet .

Go to settings > wireless>tap on the network and select forget.

enable wireless again and selct the network and tap connect>it would prompt for network key if its secured network.

enter the network key and it should take care of the issue.

OMG! This was my EXACT question and I'm wondering if what the other person wrote helped? I'm frustrated over this. I'm on my laptop right now, with good wireless connection, but nothing for the tablet. Just like you said. I'm going to try what they said, I hope it works. P.S. How do  you reset using a paperclip? You just dont press the power button?

Re: Can't connect to to wireless

Are you sure that you are using the correct wireless key, letters, numbers, upper/lower case ?

Re: Can't connect to to wireless

Does the tablet see the router? In other words when you look at available networks is yours shown? If not, do you see other networks?

I have similar problem, slightly different to op’s mine quickly "connected" and quickly failed--if reset wifi.

 

If click saved ssid simply tells me "failed connect....."

Re: Can't connect to wireless

Does sound like a classic "handshake protocol" problem whereby the key is being entered incorrectly, have you attempted to connect to a public WiFi, this would rule out any issues of the wireless adapter in the tablet being faulty. You may also consider changing your router security if it is WEP and upgrading to WPA-PSK, some tablets have issues with WEP.
