Default internet problems with joytab

I have just bought a joypad too and exactly the same problem happened. According to the pdf manual - from gemini websit if using a wep key on your encrypted router try changing to a wpa one instead. I started this and when my router was unencrypted connected the tablet with no problem. Tried encrypting with wpa-psk connected fine. Went back to wep and lo and behold also fine. I suggest you temporaril unencrpyt then re-encrypt when you have a connection. This worked for me hope it does for you.

The portable hotspot option is for sharing the tablet's own 3G internet connection(if it has one) with other wifi devices, like PCs. It's known as tethering. That's probably why you're getting no internet.

I had the same problem but I have now managed to get it connected by trying something slightly different.

Initially I was going into settings, selecting wifi and then pressing on the recognised wireless network. When I entered the password for the network it would not connect.

To get it working, I selected Wifi in the settings, and then selected "ADD NETWORK". This showed a list of recognised wifi networks, and when I selected my wifi network I entered the password and it connected straight away.

I hope this helps! I was getting ready to send mine back, but its working fine now.
