Morning all, new here, I'm hoping you may be able to help....

My son has an Acer Iconia A500 Tablet running Android 3.1. For some reason when switched on it is suddenly refusing to connect to the home WiFi - insisting it's 'scanning' on a continuous basis. It can 'see' the WiFi network, but won't/can't connect.

I've tried the obvious things and nothing has changed. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Any help/advice is much appreciated!

My 2 cents:

Try this:

The WiFi Router settings

Cell phones /tabs use a cheap generic WiFi cheap set, so they can not use the better settings (except security settings usually)

It is common issue to have the WiFi signal, says "connected" but there is "No connection" if the WiFi settings are advanced.

U have to set up your WiFi router or AP use the WiFi generic settings ie, 20mhZ, no dual band 2.4 only, etc

Try it, reboot, & try it

U can also just temporarily remove the password to the WiFi to test as well, just remember what ever you change on one u may have to change on the other, ie password just in case cuz its easy to forget
