    Purchased 3 of these tablets for Christmas. Two of them have no wifi issues at all. The 3rd one is very strange. It has connected to two different home wifi networks and two different motel wifi networks with no problems. But, it will not connect to my home network... it just keeps blinking connecting. The other two tablets have connected to the same two home networks and the two motel networks and they will connect to my home network so the only variable is the one tablet.

    This makes no sense to me... the tablet can connect to other networks so it's wifi is certainly working. The other tablets can connect to my home network (as can my gome tablet, my phone and laptop); and yes I am using the correct password to connect on the tablet so my home network is obviously working.

    I am at a loss to further troubleshoot... ANY ideas?

    Thanks

    If you haven't already done so, try resetting your router. Turn it off or unplug it for about 30 seconds and then turn it on again, this sometimes will solve the problem.

    Did you see this thread already regarding the Wifi?
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-3/52053-wifi-problem-mid-7034-a.html

    If 2 out of 3 are working well...perhaps there's something wrong (hardware) with the 3rd one? One of the posts in the above thread mentions a forum user contacting Coby support and Coby informed of their awareness with faulty wifi.

    Edit...wifi tips thread:

    Hope things work out for you :D

    Thanks for the reply and links to threads... but the one that is having problems on my home network has connected to two other home networks (and continues to connect to them) and two motel networks without problems so that pretty much negates a hardware problem with it don't you think?

    That's why this is so difficult to troubleshoot :)

    Ah...I didn't completely understand your original post :eek:
    The other thing I do when my wifi doesn't want to connect - I go into settings...turn wifi off completely, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on - that usually gets me back on track.
