This answer was rated:

I recently changed my broadband and home phone supplier, there were a few problems with the setting up but were resolved except that my Samsung 3 Tablet fails to sign in. Should it have picked up the signals from my new router or laptop.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.As its a new router the setting has to be scanned and then enter the new router password ***** the tab to get back to the internet.
Go to Apps through Home screen.Scroll to Settings, then tap on it.Make sure the Wi-Fi on your phone has been activated. When the slider next to the Wi-Fi option shows green indicates that it has been turned on.Here a list of Wi-Fi networks are available will be displayed on your phone screen.Tap the required network.Follow the instructions that appear on your phone screen then select the security settings if required.If the Wi-Fi network that you choose asks for a password, then enter the password.Tap Connect button.Tap Home button to return to the Home screen.Finish. Now your phone is connected to a selected Wi-Fi network.

Note: You must disable ‘Automatic restore’ before you disable ‘Back up my data.’
Tap to clear the Back up my data check box, if necessary.

Michelle I am totally lost now, I can't back up on table as a request comes up for a password, I have tried every password ***** know but can't get past this stage.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think I shall have to end this although I still can't get on to emails on tablet.
Go to Settings > Personal > Back Up and Reset > Factory Data Reset > Reset Device > Delete All. Alternatively, you can type in *2767*3855# ***** the key pad and that will do the same thing.
