    Wierd to see this thread today as I am having a problem with acer accepting wifi tethered rooted evo. It sees it but won't accept it. Watched netflix this morning on the way to work. No problems. Now won't pick it up. Accepts linksys and visio routers at home no problem. Just wierd. Used sprint hotspot on the way home from work with no problems. Wifi tether working fine and a500 sees it just won't accept. Forgot and renewed it 5 or more times without success. Just keeps cycling. Always something.

    Yes, This solution works well for all routers. Assign a static IP (away from the ones being automatically assigned) in your wi-fi setting on your tablet, and you won't have the disconnect problem anymore.

    This is most common problem with acer tablets,all you have to do is to be close with the AP.

    I haven't got a problem. Also I just want to correct some mis-understanding. Leave the tablet on DHCP. When you force the tablet to forget the connection and then reconnect, you can force the tablet to use a IP further away.

    The problem is that you will get devices clashing over IP addresses. Don't tell me it doesn't happen it does. Most of my IT calls are for this very reason. iPads and iPhones are the most guilty when it comes to snatching another devices IP.

    I had the same issue....I reset to factory default and then changed wi-fi disconnect policy to the option ( when screen turns off)...I am able to view full movies without wi-fi disconnecting....hope it works for you.
