    I just bought a Proscan PLT 8223G last week. I was excited to own an Android OS. However, The wifi will only work decent if I'm in the room with my wireless router. I don't know if it is because it is just cheap or something else. My son is a computer geek and did everything he knows to do with router settings etc. I'm ready to throw the thing in the trash. Can anyone give me any other ideas, or am I just stuck with an oversized paper weight? :mad:

    I bought a cheap Irulu tablet when I first got interested. When I booted it, I had to go downstairs where the router was and hold it there for a few cycles until it found the router. Then I could bring it back up. But the signal strength often went to zero while it was in use. I think the electronics are just weak.
