    Hello again, Does your router have encryption?

    When you enable wifi on the tablet does your router's SSID show up on a list, is there more/other peoples wifi showing?

    on your s 3 go to the wifi and long press on your connection to the router, menu will come up modify is the one you want to press NOT FORGET NETWORK you dont want that to forget it. Now when you press modify a new box will come up it will say

    Status connected
    signal strength good
    link speed
    security- and this is the one you want to know,
    wpa2 psk, the likely one but it could be other as well
    Then it will say
    password
    That is what you would need if the router is encrypted.

    ok you need the password/key to connect do you know who set up your router? You may need to contact them.

    I may not be able to answer much my son is going in to the doc in the morning and its going to be a long day.:(

    Ok Thank you, my son came through very well, as expected. It sounds like that passcode is the one you need to put into the phone to connect it to the router, have you tried that.
