    I"m a owner of Acer A500 which I absolutely love. I know there's a lot for me to learn. As of yesterday when ever I try to get online my tablet wants me to sign into www.mywifiext.net:80 " NETGEAR WN 3000RP". How do I get rid of this sign in. I do not use netgear. Every time I try to get on line after I press cancell because I do not have nor want to use netgear I get 401 UNAUTHORIZED authentication.
    :(

    Have you gone to Settings> Wifi and made sure that you are connected to YOUR router with password? you may have to reconnect because of a corrupted p/w connection or whatever.

    Welcome. Yep I would open settings/wireless and networks/wifi and forget any network there. Just press it and forget it. Then reconnect to your wifi.

    Hi Lucia, congratulations on your new tablet and welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you're having WiFi problems, but if you do as Jimbo and Droid-Xer have suggested that should take care of it. Enjoy your new tablet and the forum!

    Did you try forgetting the WiFi network and adding it again?

    Also, are you sure you are on your own network and not a neighbors?
