    Not sure (hope it is) right forurm...

    My acer iconia is sick.

    Wifi works fine Except:

    1) android marketplace no longer shows it has a connection
    2) G-talk no longer shows a connection
    3) I can't seem to verify my gmail is updating ok on my tablet.

    I CAN surf ok (on both my home wifi, as well as at other (open AND locked SSID's),
    and I can get online both through firefox as well as built-in browser.

    I googled a few things, and only things I saw were:
    a) make sure the udp port is open (it WAS working before on my machine.)
    b) make sure date is set correctly..

    Now for the fishy part.

    I did try and install the beta version of pdanet for tablet.

    and I have since uninstalled it too..

    but I can't verify that the problem started around that time...

    g-talk DID use to work, as did the marketplace. (as well as amazon app marketplace.)

    Ideas?? solutions???

    I am loathe to reboot and or re-wipe the system to scratch if I can avoid it...
