    Hi, there,
    please help me to solve my problem.

    It is a wifi only device. Until now I had no connection problem. Now I experience the following issue:
    1. Wifi says: it is connected.
    2. Dolphin browser works, but not really filne. I have to click on several security warnings, before accessing a site (on well-known pages like Facebook e.g.).
    3. Facebook app, Market, Calendar cannot access internet at all. I guess nothing can access internet, except the browser.
    I restarted my device several times without any result. I closed all running programs I had access to, and even removed some apps including my anti-virus software (AVG). It didn't help. I hope you can. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds as if you're connected to a public hotspot (like a Starbucks) or someone's router's guest account. IOW, it's a problem with the wifi connection you're using, not with the tab.

    Thanks for the answer, but I forgot to mention that I tried it with different networks (including my own at home that works with other computers), and the behavior was the same.
