    For those of you failed update, is your Tab rooted?

    Even if you manage to get wi-fi to work, even though your tab says it is running 3.2, some of your system binaries are probably still old because of failed update process. That's also the reason why wi-fi won't connect properly.

    Basically same story as the first AT&T Captivate (Galaxy S) update for some owners. Samsung never learns.
    No Root and now No Wi-Fi on my 32 gig Tab. I wish I had gone the Kies route like sreymj.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 wi-fi edition. Installed with 38% battery life went perfect, booted perfectly and runs smooth. Found Allshare that I've been harping to Samsung to finally release or remove from features offered on their site. Glad to see we got it but Twonky is a better alternative.

    The upgrade is seamless through Kies. No issues at all.
    Have others had success doing it through Kies? I haven't updated yet, but would like to soon if there was a way that worked for sure.

    Glad to know this before I updated 12 at work - would have had some very unhappy council members. Hope it gets resolved soon.

    I just changed the saved Wi-Fi info from DHCP to Static. Just press and hold on the saved Wi-Fi info and select "Modify network config".

    You'll need to set up the static IP on your router. That process varies from router to router, so you will have to look that up online.
    i used my phone to tether to im not sure if wifi tether has static wifi

    I think Samsung has pulled the updates. Neither my tab nor Kies now shows any updates.

    for those who applied the update, can you share what your firmware version is now reading? I opened Kies and it downloaded a pretty substantial update, then installed it, and now my firmware is reading as PDA:KME / CSC:KME (XAB) but my tablet doesn't look like anything was applied. Still on 3.1 and looks like the old build info on the tab.

    Mine updated fine via USB and Kies. The jitteryness has stopped and so far, it seems more responsive. Saw the same thing when the Transformer got 3.2.

    The updated firmware should show KMM. KME is the old 3.1 update with a small 3.5MB update. Basically, IIRC, when 3.1 was released, there are also a lot of problemes and failed updates. Samsung pulled the update and later re-released it as KME. And for those already updated, a smaller updated (3.5MB) was also released to bring it to KME. Look like history is repeating itself. We will see a newer update package to KMM.

    When I plug in using Kies, the main screen boldly says "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies."

    How are you guys getting Kies to work? I installed version 2.1.0.11095_121 that I downloaded from the web site tonight.

    Won't it be important to use Kies to fix this bad update?

    I started to update it via Kies, but I stopped it. It's VERY slow, and considering the issues people are having, I think I'll just wait.

    I was able to get WiFi and rotate back by downloading the new ROM (from XDA) and flashing it with Odin. I suspect that if your tab was broken when you applied the update via WiFi rather than KIES you can do the same.

    Can you post a link to the ROM on xda? I have been looking for a simple stock rom to flash with odin. Its every device should have its own wiki with all these links. Makes everything so EASY! love ODIN.

    The first thing I did when I hear this was disconnect auto update. Glad it did not push the update because I was draining the battery last night.

    All the complaints about the 'Lion' upgrade show that even Apple screw up with software upgrades.

    I called Samsung and they offered to have the device sent to their repair facility to flash it back to 3.1 which I did, after that I am turning off automatic updates! They essentially "bricked" my tablet in my opinion. I did the static ip thing for my home network but couldn't use it anywhere else.
