    Hi:

    About a month ago I bought an Onda V702 (Android 4.0.4) and was never able to get online since it doesn't find my network (even though the Wi-fi mode is ON). When using my laptop, I can always get online.

    I'd appreciate any help (with detailed instructions since I'm new using these devices and OS).

    Thanks!

    Are you using wifi security (password, WEP or WPA encryption?) two of my tablets won't connect unless I turn security off, and both are budget brands

    I can't say for sure (at least, I didn't set any encryption intentionally and the system never requested any password). When I verified in Security > Passwords, there is only the option of "Make passwords visible" (which I cheched and unchecked with no different results). Nevertheless, when I selected "Advanced" in Wireless & networks > Wi-fi, there are two fields that can't be modified:

    - MAC address (00:2a:01:00:63:b1)
    - IP address (Unavailable)

    It seemed relevant so I mentioned it. Thanks for your advices.
