The issue of connecting the Sony Tablet to WiFi seems prevalent and I am surprised there is no more substantial prgress since Oct last year in resolving this. If anyone know different pls tell me!
I took delivery of my Tablet on Friday. could not get it to connect to a BT Homehub 2 with WPA/WPA 2 security.
Could see my homehub router with an excellent signal but when it tries to connect, it dropd the router strength to -1mbs (or told me the router is out of range), scanns without connecting, has trouble obtaining the IP address etc. etc.
After much googling, I removed all Wifi secutiry on Saturday morning and connected straight away, no problem. Upgraded the Android version to 3.2.1 (release 2). Everything great. Tablet turned off over night, connected straight away the following morning. All good.
On Monday evening, being uncomfortable with zero router security, I began stepping through each of the router security options (WEP/WPA/WPA2 etc.) one by one and testing whether the Tablet would connect and stay connected. Got up to WPA/WPA2 PSK (which it had previously failed to connect to), stayed connected, played all evening, all good.
Turned off last night. This morning, connected straight away running with a good signal (72mbs).
Suddenly, this afternoon, it dropped off the wifi and will now not connect at all, giving the same issues experienced on Friday.
I have begun stepping back through the different router security settings with no joy (have not got as far as zero security yet!)
I have to then go and connect all the other devices in the house to the router everytime I change the security settings.
My tablet was sent to me in the UK from the Netherlands so taking it back to the store is not really an option.
This is pretty much a disaster at the moment. I managed to download Wifi Analyzer and checked the router - no issue.
I have consistently "forgotten" then re-added the wifi network on the tablet to no avail.
Right now, my tablet tells me it is connected to BT Open Zone - which is requesting payment to use - but my homehub which the tablet is sat next to is out of range.
Is there any sensible resolution to this problem that I might have missed?
