    Dropping repeater connection

    A500, I bought an Amped wireless repeater because of the poor wifi card on my tab. When I pick it up after not using the A500 for a while, I often (but not always) find that it has switched from the repeated wifi signal, which is very strong, back to my primary wireless router, where the signal is weaker. I switch it back & it obtains an IP address and switches, but it's a hassle. Is there any way to force it to stay on the repeater, or anyone have an idea why it does this? Thanks!

    When you let the tablet go to sleep, it autpmatically disconnects from the network. When you wake it, it scans the list of previously configured networks and connects to the first that it finds. Try to "forget" the orginal network so the tablet does not continue to scan for it on wake up. Just select the old network name from WiFi settings, and press the "forget" button.
