    Hello, I'm having a problem with my tablet.
    It's a G-Rexx 700 and it seemed to stop wanting to connect to the my wifi.
    Earlier today it was connecting to it fine and I was browsing the web. Later that day when I tried to browse the web, it won't connect to the network. It says my router is disabled and this isn't true - I'm on my laptop as I write this.


    What needs to be done to restore this tablet to it's former glory?

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum Hephcestus

    Based on the fact that it HAD worked, try powering your router off for 30 seconds. After it powers back up restart your tablet. If it's still a problem go to settings WiFi and long press the connection, tell it to forget then try reconnecting.

    It is to no avail, do you think something got turned off? I find it very odd it just decided to stop finding the wifi.

    Welcome to the forum! Thanks for joining us here.

    Does it work with other WiFi hotspots or see other networks?

    Perhaps try going to Settings - Networks & Wireless - WiFi - Make sure it is turned on, and also long press on your WiFi network and choose FORGET.

    Reboot, scan and see if it is there after that.
