Sorry to hear about your daughter missing home. One thing they could try doing as it can sometimes resolve connectivity issues like this, is to try resetting the WiFi router, unplug it from the power, and plug it back in.

Unfortunately however the e-STAR is a rather budget tablet of unknown Chinese manufacture(they have a registered office in Hong Kong), and fluky WiFi is a frequent issue with these things. But resetting the router can sometimes get them connected.
