Default Just got my AGPtek android notebook

But can't connect to my Wi Fi- states poor signal even when I,m right near the router. Next it says obtaining IP address , then that goes off the screen and I think I'm connected but when I go to browser or play store, it says "page not found". I've been to 3 public places where they have Wi Fi and have connected no- problem. The remote computer in another room connects- no problem. Please help me figure this out.- Paul

Not sure if this will apply to your situation, but I ran into the same thing trying to connect to an older AipPort (Apple) router at my in-laws. After racking my brain trying to figure out what was going on, I finally decided to change the WiFi encryption from WEP to WPA (or WPA2, can't remember which.) And, viola - I connect perfectly every time now. I later heard from a friend who has a similar router that they could have told me that this was the problem all along.

Hope that helps, and good luck!
