other people are connected fine. Not an issue with my router.
Don't be so quick to reject advice. Routers can get stuck on some devices as well.
Go into wifi settings and tell it to forget your router, then wait till it finds the router again and
enter your passphrase again. ONLY pick from the list of routers, don't go the "add wifi network" method.
If that does not work, Straighten a paper clip and wait till it says obtaining an ip and use the
paperclip to reset the tablet while it tries to obtain an ip the second time.
The A500 is probably selecting an IP that is already in use. Get your tablet to forget the connection to your router/modem connection the IP issued to your tablet. Then go into the Wifi section and get it to to find a new IP address (force it to pick another address). Do what Icebike suggests go to another wifi point and see if the tablet will pick-up a new network with IP. If that works then it is your router.other people are connected fine.

Yep another very good suggestion. I believe Iceike has given a extremely good explanation.Another option to try is changing your dhcp lease time. It should be in your router's options. It's likely that an infinite lease time is interpreted by the tablet as extremely short rather than extremely long- forcing it to constantly renew its IP address. I changed mine to a week and haven't had the problem since. Good luck!
Yeah, sounds like the culprit to me. Maybe you 've got some IT wannabe, like the boss who has admin access, or at least someone like that who's got admin rights and is stuffing it up for everyone else.Thank you for all that info. We are set up as dhcp not fixed. I did try the reset still did not work.
So i took a walk over to the network guys office (he has been out for a few days) and he could not get on either. So it looks like the router may be down.
He is going to reset and get back to me.
Its strange. the router is acting like its up but maybe someone changed a configuration and kicked us off.
Ill report back when they resolve it.
Again thanx for all the great info and please dont stop.
