My new tablet will not connect to the internet

  andy63walsh 15:14 28 Feb 2013

I just can't get on the net. I can see my router and connect with the password, but still won't go on the net. Mind you when I log into the router with my p.c. it does not show it as connected!

Double check the password for upper/lower case. Getting one wrong is the usual reason for what you're experiencing.

it is a Sumvision Voyager-BT 10.1 inch screen, isp is Tiscali. Everything else is ok, playstation, laptop, p.c. all ok.

There is a lot of discussion on the web regarding the ports to use for Tiscali and an Android device.

Some people have said that this combination works for POP3...

Tiscali ? Login [email protected]

Incoming email (POP3)

Outgoing email (SMTP)

Incoming Port 110

Outgoing Port 587

Outgoing SSL Yes

Outgoing Authentication Yes

we have one laptop, one ps3, one ipad, my mobile phone will (when on) all wireless, two desktop p.c's on it, all not on at once

On the new tablet, it says connected to router, but on the bottom right corner it says "no internet connection",the router is defo on and connected to the p.c's etc. I notice on the "wireless & networks" part on the tablet it says VPN, portable hotspot, ethernet and mobile networks, I wonder if i have to do something there?
