    I picked up the new Note a few days ago. I had no problem finding and connecting to networks where I was staying as well as around town and at airports.

    Upon arriving home I found I couldn't connect to my home wifi network. I added the network manually (SSID not broadcast). The network was added but was labelled as "out of range". I changed my router settings (Linksys WAG320N), network is listed but "out of range". I currently have two other wireless devices connected to the network without a problem (including a Win8 laptop connected for the first time along with the Note attempt).

    TIA

    Out of range means that the phone isn't seeing that SSID on the air. The most likely cause is a typo on your part.

    No, not a typo.

    This evening I tried shutting down all my wifi devices, rebooting the route (again) then trying to connect the tablet. No luck.

    Next a did a factory reset on the tablet (saw a reference to this online). No luck.

    Finally, a friend suggested changing the channel in my router settings. Problem solved!
