    I am unable to sync my gmail or go into the playstore. My tablet keeps saying that there was a problem with the network whenever I attempt to open any of the google apps. However, when I go onto google as the search engine, I am able to surf the web with no problem. What is going on? I recently changed my router to Netgear, but not sure if that is the problem or not since I am able to surf the web.
    Can anyone help me figure what is wrong?
    Thank you!

    Hello katwoman, and welcome to Android Forums. :)

    The Google account which opens the Play Store and Google apps is it's own "network" in the sense of a separate account with your own individual password, unlike the internet via wifi router which may or may not require a password ("key phrase," etc depending on type of encryption).

    Have you activated the Gmail/Google account and set a password?
