    Initial WiFi setup problems...

    Having read every bit of advice and reviews, I picked up my Gentouch at Kmart today. Everything works as expected -- looks and works very similar to my Droid X, including the WiFi setup. Problem is, even though my Droid X has no problems connecting to my wireless network at home, my Gentouch will not. I put in the network name, triple checked the password, the Gentouch knows what encryption settings I have, but does not actually connect. WiFi is enabled of course; I've deleted and re-entered the network information several times. I can live with the other limitations of this device, but WiFi not working is a dealbreaker!

    Anyone have any similar problems? No response yet from Augen support, nothing else in the FAQs on their site.

    Have you tried removing the password from your wireless router that has been known to work, or try resetting your router and tablet and see if that helps.

    When I enabled WiFi, it found my router and asked for a password. After entering the password, it registered with the router, got an IP address and I've been browsing the internet just fine. I was even able to use the file browser to access files on my Win7 PC. FTP connections also work, although it has a tendancy to hang when requesting directory contents.

    My main complaint is that I can't download anything from the Android Store. It says Starting Download and then just hangs.

    Back to your WiFi connection, you might also try seeing if you can connect using a public hot-spot.

    Gentouch has problems accessing the Android Market. A patch was suppose to be released on 7/30/2010, but they only released the drivers for USB connectivity. Hopefully a patch will be out within the next few days to address that. As for the wi-fi connectivity problems, what is the level of security on your router (wep, wpa, etc.)??

    Scarybob did that work for you.

    dadown until the patch comes out you can side load apps by downloading them to a memory card and then using a file explorer to open them and install them

    If your wifi has issues after changing routers or locations, it may be a hardware issue. The Telechips TCC8902 platform the Augen is equipped with is not all that robust. I wouldn't be surprised if there are quality control issues.
