    My Android tablet isn't connecting to the wireless internet anymore, it isn't even giving me time to put in the wireless internet information. It will stay connected for about a minute and then turn off by itself and I don't know how to fix it. I've tried restarting it and a lot of other stuff. Please any help is much needed. Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum EricaW

    The problem may be your WiFi router/modem. Try powering it down for 30 seconds then power it back up and retry your connection.

    If that doesn't work we can look elsewhere. You might also try to find a public WiFi hotspot to see if you can connect to it in case it really is a problem with the tablet.

    I have tried to connect to the internet many places. It's the wi-fi connection, when i turn it on so I can connect to the internet it will only stay on for a minute then turn itself off, so I can't even put in the internet information or even connect to it.

    Have you installed any apps that would have helped in getting connected to a phone, something like PDANet?

    No, the types of apps I was talking about COULD cause a problem. I think it sounds as though your tablet has a hardware problem. See if you can get an RMA with the manufacturer to get it repaired.
