    Hi Kellby,
    Like you my time and date were correct but after trying everything else I had to give it a go and low and behold, it's done the trick. I simply went into my date settings and re-selected the same date and somehow this has solved the problem and all my apps are opening so even if your date and time settings are correct it still may be worth a try as it worked for me!

    Hell, I don't know how you discovered this, but you're a godsend!

    The time & date on mine were correct, but I twiddled the settings and put them back, and it worked!

    What I also found is that re-enabling automatic time/date causes the problem to come back, so I'm leaving it on manual, for now.

    Oh, and I'm the second person who's signed up to the forum specifically to thank you for this! That shows how good a job you've done!

    Hi all....I just had the same problem stumping me this morning and I just figured out that it was in Power Saving Mode!!! So simple, and yet....so I took it off Power Saving and voila..it's working fine :) So, if nothing else works for you, try this out.

    Hello, just wanted to add my experience, having solved the problem, in case it helps someone. :)

    As the username suggests, I have a Lenovo Smarttab and Samsung phone. Both were connected to my Virgin media router and then, halfway through a programme on Netflix, the tablet lost its connection to the internet.

    It connected to the wifi at first, but the little blue lines to show a connection were grey, suggesting an issue with the router's connection to the world. However, my phone was connected so it was clearly a problem between the tablet and the router.

    I refreshed the router (using WPS button) and tablet's wifi list a few times to no avail. Tab kept saying there was a failure with the refresh. Eventually the tab didn't connect to the router at all, saying "avoided bad internet connection".

    I restarted the tab. Nothing. The date and time were also fine so I didn't need to change those, as was suggested by some people. Security was already in WPA/WPA2 as some have suggested (apparently WEP causes issues).

    In the end, I saw something in a forum about IP conflicts which can be dealt with by fiddling with dynamic/static IP settings, or rebooting the router with the the power button. I don't know the first thing about changing such settings, so I did a hard reboot on the router (power off for 30 seconds). While it rebooted, I turned the tablet's wifi off and on, and then left them to find each other.

    Now the little curved lines to indicate a wifi connection on my tablet are blue again, and I can resume my programme. :)

    Hope this helps someone who might be feeling as frustrated as I was!

    Hi all,
    registered just to share this with you,
    I bought a cheapy tablet, Sunstech. It worked perfectly for the first day then started with these connection problems that seem SO common.
    It was connecting to the net and then either not displaying pages or just disconnecting itself.
    I fixed it by doing a complete reset of my wifi router, right back to factory settings. Now the tablet connects fine. I dunno, go figger. It worked for me, hope it helps someone else too.:)

    :(
    I signed up to this forum just for this issue. I have a Samsung Tab 4, 10.1. It's a year and a bit old.
    Today I had a tech guy connect a new pc to my Internet modem via ethernet cable. It's a business pc that has to run 24/7, so does my Internet.
    My modem allows 6 WiFi devices. I have 5 that will be used regularly. 4 of these work perfectly (as does the pc via ethernet cable).
    Since connecting the pc, my Tablet has developed this issue of saying it's connected to WiFi but no Internet.
    I tried the date/time fix and restarted each time (3 times). All of it was accurate but I typed over it and saved 3 times.
    No luck!!!
    Nothing has worked!
    I cannot reboot the modem.
    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated thank you!! :)

    While the date and other tweaks, above, didn't solve my problem (tab worked fine and then all of a sudden it wouldn't connect though WiFi, though it said the signal was "excellent") I did find MY fix.

    I poked around so many places and tried so many things... but in the end it was the "Modify Network" and Password which needed it re-input though it said "(unchanged) " and would lead one to believe all was well. lol

    The tablet had somehow forgotten the router's "Key Description" which is the number on the bottom of our router

    Sheesh.

    Like several others here, I had to join to thank you ~ :)

    If that doesn't work try restarting your router and/or modem. This fixed my problem.
    In case you don't know what they are...

    I joined the forum because after reading all of the comments and solutions, I am still having issues with my Tab 2. I did a factory reset because it was running very slow and becoming unresponsive. After the reset, I was able to connect to my wi-fi with no problems and still have a message on my tablet that "There was a problem connecting to the network". I even turned off my modem and turned it back on but that also did not help. I have set and reset my time and date a dozen times and still nothing. It did connect though to my phone's hot spot, and it seemed to work OK from that, but I can't use all my data so I need to figure out why it won't connect to the wi-fi. Any other solutions or help would be greatly appreciated.
