    Tab S connects to mifi, to iBoost, to hotspot. But in all cases no internet.
    Was working fine. Went out for 2 hours, left Tab on but screen off. On return still connected but no internet.
    Rebooted everything. Tried date/time thing.
    What happened in those 2 hours? Desperate plea for help.

    If Google's search page comes up it sounds like the DNS numbers on your Tab need correcting. Try installing a basic DNS changing app like this one, it has a nice listing of several public DNS numbers:

    Thanks svim. I'll note that for next time because now, for some inexplicable reason, I seem to be back up and running normally.
