    Just purchased a samsung galaxy 10.1 32gb. I had a problem with an acer not connecting to my wifi and now this won't... I thought it was just the tablet but I am now figuring it is my internet/router? In simpleton terms how to a fix my router to support and get on the internet with my samsung galaxy? It is a netgear wireless- g router wgr614 v9 .... Help!

    Reboot your router.

    A lot of people don't know how IP assignment works, and they just assume that the router should work all the time. So yes, rebooting the router and tablet is a logical suggestion. However, the issue may be with the router and tablet not communicating well as the Tab doesn't like 'cheap' routers.

    I had a cheap Belkin that worked ok for wired connections but my Tab would disconnect or fail to connect over WiFi after waking. I also had problems with my Wii and one HTC smartphone not working reliably. I had to replace the router when upgrading my internet service to much faster speeds, and bought a really good router (Asus RT-N56U) to keep up with the faster internet. Since getting the Asus router, I've never had a problem connecting with the Tab or any other wireless devices, everything connects and works great, even the old HTC phone and Wii connect 100%.
