Android tablet will not bring up web page


Mar 8, 2012
I am in desperate need of some help. I purchased a google android 2.2 tablet from ebay and received it a couple of days ago. I have no idea how to connect to the internet. I have read the entire user guide which was little help. Where I am I don't have wifi access, but I do have use of an ethernet connection and the user guide says that I can connect that way. When I plug in the ethernet cord it shows that it is connected, but when I go to open a wep page it says page not available. My user guide also told me that after I connected to the internet with an ethernet cable to click on a red icon called brills gift, but no where on my tablet is there such an icon. There is a browser icon and a dolphin browser icon, but they just take me to this webpage is unavailable. please help...
