    I'm pretty sure that your problem is the router. I have a link in my signature that will take you to a thread discusses all the things that you should be doing or could be doing to solve the problem. Report back with the results.

    hi
    thanks but i have already checked the router and it is set correctly and working fine with my husbands tablet and phones etc. just my tablet will not work now so i think it is the tablet that has a problem not the router?

    Because one works does not mean the other will due to differences in chip sets and the apps you have installed that may interfere. My suggestion is to find a free public hotspot or a friend's WiFi to test it before kicking the tablet out the door. ;)

    I assume you have tried a restart of your tablet? You may indeed have a hardware problem.
