New, Not Happy, About to Return It
I just bought tablet today and wanted to give it to my kids. I started it up after charging and attempted to connect to wi-fi it found my name and I put in my password and it started searching for ip address but it never connected even though I had the tablet right beside the router. It said avoid poor internet connection poor service then it said out of range when i am sitting right beside it. There is no customer service number for help or website and I am about return it because it is not worth the headache.

Welcome to the site. Hope you get a tablet that works fine although I doubt I would make a special trip to return it today!
Hi sweetthing, welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us here at Android Tablets. Before returning that tablet, I'd suggest you try one thing. Unplug/turn off your router for about 30 seconds and then turn it back on to reset it. That has solved the problem for many people. If it doesn't work, return the tablet.

When it says out of range, it means the IP address not the distance between modem/router and the tablet.
