    Hi, just had a new android tablet as a christmas pressie which i got to work great off our wifi connection. Have been having difficulty getting back on the net with it and noticed that a little paddlock comes up next to my bt wifi connection :confused: i referred back to the manual which advised me to re-type my wifi password which i have done on several attempts but its not unlocking it. I"ve even tried to reset back to factory settings wiping my info to no avail :(
    Any advice would be great thanks

    try "forget" on the connection then do a new search to add it back. It means your password is not being accepted.

    And you haven't changed the WiFi password on the router? also, you are SURE you are entering the password correctly on your device?

    I am having the same problem. I can't connect to my wireless router. I tried to forget the connection and start again, but I must be missing something. Any help is appreciated!
