when you try to scan available wireless network on your tab do you see the ssid or the router name of you wireless router in the search list?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
If yes then you must re confirm the router password ***** you might be entering wrong. if you have a pc or a computer let me know i can search the correct password ***** you, then you can try entering it on the Tablet and it should accept and and will work fine.

I'm actually thinking now of throwing it in the bin I've had so many friends look at it's like there is no network card to work it almost like something is missing !
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
how old is the tabletit seems the wifi chip on the tablet is not working and is unable to connect to the routerif the unit is within warranty you can get it servicedelse if out of warranty repair would be costly and it would be better to opt in for a new tablet
