    Default new nexus 7 owner requires urgent help

    Have received new nexus 7 16gb Wifi.Took on holiday to South Africa,used couple of times via WiFi hotspot there & got internet access.Arrived home in UK & couldn't get connectivity to my home wifi.Nothing of import downloaded but got confused & hit the factory reset function.On opening has reverted to opening scenario,ie language options then wifi-it recognises my wireless router but just wont connect and is stuck on this recurring scenario.
    What can i do?

    Did you change any of the settings in Africa to get it to work on their networks? Dynamic IP or other network settings ? I guess it should be fresh since you just did a reset what kind of router do you have and do you have anything else on the network now?

    I am no teck but maybe your. Tab is set to their settings. First I would search google for answers, I did read something about Africa and router differences from others..not sure if that helps, but just why I chimmed in.

    Try rebooting your router by unplugging it and then plugging it back in.

    Make sure the wireless router doesn't have MAC filtering on. Try with no password setup on router.

    Whats weird is that if you did not turn off and on your tablet while connected to their wifi then it should not be a problem. I am sure you tablet just did not change the dynamic IP by itself. Have you tried a straight up full wipe? I know it might suck but hey better than having a brick for a tablet.
