    Let's take things one at a time.

    1. What kind of tablet do you have?
    2. What do you mean it says connected? Are you seeing it in the lower right corner, or in the Top Bar? How do you know?
    3. What app are you using to connect to the web? The built-in browser? what are you trying to access?

    Hi msbeatty, Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new tablet. Nice to have you as a member of Android Tablets. Now that I know the type of tablet you have, I can move your thread to the best place for someone to help you out. That's the Acer Tablets section and by the time you can read this, you'll be there.

    Do you have another device (phone, computer, etc) to connect to your WiFi network to verify the WiFi router is connected to the network?

    Also, if you go into Settings - Wireless & Network - WiFi Settings, does it say Connected?

    Finally, go to Settings - About - Status and see what the IP address is and make sure it is similar to the Gateway (AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD and the A's, B's and C's match from the gateway to the IP address. Example: IP Address: 192.168.1.102, Gateway: 192.168.1.1)
