    Okay so I got my mom a craig tablet for christmas. After a few weeks I notice she is still constantly on the laptop. So I pick up this tablet and it takes about 30 sec to see why. This thing is ridiculous the wifi iss super crazy slow. Can't play any of the slot games she is addicted to from FB. What can I do to make this thing faster on the wifi amnd basically just work better.
    Its a craig cmp746e
    8 " screen I think.

    People are always saying how much better android os is than apple but I really like my iphone way better than this android. Hopefully I can get some help here to at least make android a lil better but as of now I will never buy another piece of equipment that has the little bot on it

    Android tablets are imo better that iOS tablets, based on the number of people I work with that have both, but a tablet isn't for everyone. With that said I have a link below that has some suggestions for WiFi connection issues if that's your main problem.

    On the slots problem is your Mom using a browser, do the slots require Flash and if so is it installed.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Read somwhhere that these tablets have two different wifi or something like that. I know its not the router or anything as my laptop flies and so does my iphone when I have it on there but this thing is crazy slow

    If you buy Cheap you get Cheap have you heard of this? Look at it this way if everyone in the house is on WiFi only then the speed will drop you can't have super fast WiFi on every tablet anyway follow 'Leeshor' way he have some good links for you to read

    I understand that I am not a moron. With only the tablet itself on it just takes ridiculously long to load pages and basically do anything. As far as the question about the browser yea right in the browser let me see exactly what the error message is. I just downloaded flash, thanks maybe that will help

    Here you go, however I dont think you will spend the time on it or enable usb debugging + unsigned apps

    Let me google that for you
