    Hi there
    I have a samsung galaxy tab 3 7.0.WIFI I am receiving the message "obtaining ip address" and it wont connect...I have tried changing the ip settings, the ip address, the gateway, and all that, but to no avail.I know it is not the router becauseit has happened at two different places literally miles apart...
    any suggestions?

    Try rebooting the router, even if you don't think that is the problem. Also, make sure the time is correct on the tablet.

    Someone please help! I tried everything...It now says connected but my internet enabled apps and browsers say disconnected...I changed the IP thingy to static and changed the last three digits of the ip address to 192(or 129 cant remember)and thats all i can think of short of sending it back to samsung...

    JpEt check the time and date on your tab. Set it to match the time on your cell phone. If they are not correct, the apps will not be able to handshake with their servers...even though it says it's connected. It's a flaw in the operating system.

    You're the one asking for help, so why ignore tube517's suggestion, as if you are more informed? Try it, then post back as to whether it worked or not. Further help can then be offered.
