Hi,

I have just bought a 7" somertek midi tablet, operating on the android system.

I am not well schooled in pc's and cannot figure out what is required for me to get online? It didn't come with any instructions and i cannot get any method to work. So i have the following questions:

1)Is it possible to get online using a mobile broadband dongle? if so how, i cannot get it to work.(this would be my preferred method)

2)i tried connecting by inserting my pc ethernet cable into it and nothing happened? is this method possible.

3)i have noticed that there is a sd card port (i think) or a space for a sim card, is there something else i need to buy?


any help would be greatly appreciated

big thanks in advance

pete.

Did it come with a manual or instructions?

When you inserted your ethernet cable, do you mean from your broadband connection? If yes, did you then try opening the tablet's Internet browser application to check if you are connecting online? G

"It didn't come with any instructions..."

Sorry, missed that bit! G

"1)Is it possible to get online using a mobile broadband dongle?"

Possibly yes. Does it have a USB port? G

iT DIDNT COME WITH ANY MANUAL OR INSTRUCTIONS AND WHEN I PHONE IJT (THE COMPANY I BOUGHT IT FROM) THEY WERE PARTICULARLY UNHELPFUL.

WHEN YOU PLUG THE ETHERNET CABLE IN A TWO WAY ARROW APPEARS AT THE TOP BUT ANY PAGE YOU TRY TO CONNECT TO IT SAYS "WEB PAGE NOT AVAILABLE"

IF IT HELPS THIS IS THE LINK TO THE ITEM

IT COMES WITH AN ATTACHMENT THAT YOU PLUG INTO THE BOTTOM WHICH HAS 2 USB PORTS AND AN ETHERNET CONNECTION

SORRY I DONT UNDERSTAND?

Not if you continue to shout at us.

Please do not type in capitals that is the equivalent of shouting and is very rude manners.

I think what woodchip is trying to say is that the quality is not very good, & hence unlikely to last very long - that's even if you can get it to work. It's a failure as a product.

"....WHEN I PHONE IJT (THE COMPANY I BOUGHT IT FROM) THEY WERE PARTICULARLY UNHELPFUL."

Bad service & looks like a faulty one. I would send it back for a refund.

Please do not use CAPITALS in your posts. Ta, G
