    Connection Problem

    Please help this is really getting to me... I just brought a Acer a101 tablet and I'm having problems in connecting to my wireless Tenda w308r router, It was working fine yesterday but now my Tab says it's scanning, Authenticating, connecting and then it says it's disconnecting, this cycle just continues... I rang Acer tech and they said they would call back but that was hours ago..

    Any help will be appreciated

    P.S I have rebooted twice and that didn't help I even set it back to factory settings but still no good...

    Howdy SarahJade, and welcome to the forum! Sadly, the Acer chipset appears to have an incompatibility with some routers that contain an Atheros or similar chipset, and you may have one of those routers. The best 'workaround' is a static IP applied to the tab. Details are here:

    Hope this helps!

    Additionally, ensure you have the latest firmware loaded for your router....the manufacturer may have actually plugged in a fix, available only if you update:
