    I am a complete noob when it comes to tablets, so bear with me.

    I have Android O/S 4.1.1 on a generic, no brand name, made in China by slave children (I made that last part up, probably true) 8" tablet.

    I also have a Vizio 8" running Honeycomb.



    What is the easiest way to refresh a connection if it's dropped? The way I do it now is Settings App, WiFi connections tab, turn it off and back on. I'm thinking there's an easier way to do this.

    Anybody know the answer?

    Thanks,
    Carl

    That shouldn't be necessary. I have a link below in my sig with some suggestions that may solve the problem. You can try a setting that leaves WiFi on all the time and install Auto Airplane Mode (by DON) but it could be a simple fix, either by taping the connection and telling it to forget, then restart and reconnect and/or restarting your router. or changing the type of security in the router, especially if it's WEP.
