    I received my new Android today, and don't know how to connect it to a router. Should I call a tech and ask him to help me set it up? I have a PC, but when it comes to tablets, I am still in Kindergarten.:D

    Hi Carol, welcome. If the initial setup process didn't walk you through and ask for your wifi password, all you need to do is go into Settings>Wi-Fi> select your network and enter the password. How you get to settings varies slightly by which version of Android you have but you should always be able to go to the app drawer and find the Settings app there.

    Hi Carol, congratulations on your new Nextbook and welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us here at Android Tablets. As JP pointed out, going into the Settings>Wi-Fi> for your tablet and turning on the Wi-Fi should cause it to list the networks that are in range. Just select yours and, if it's protected, provide the password. Enjoy the forum and your tablet!
