    Unhappy Frustrated WiFi Working, But Not Working

    From 7.34am on 28/2 my wi fi connections have become strange... the wifi is on, it says it is connected and has a strong signal but none of the apps seem able to connect. Google Play says no connection, Facebook fails to update news feed, the weather app says 'no connection'.

    Yet all the time the little wifi fan symbol is there and the up and down arrows are flashing.

    Hmmm frustrated ... this is what I have done so far...

    • Checked version - it is running Android 4.2.2
    • I have rebooted my wifi router (3 times now!).
    • I have deleted the connection and re-scanned and re-connected.
    • I have checked memore availability and there is 0.89gb free on the device memory
      I have turned it on and off, restarted, powered up and down etc.



    Is this yet another piece of tech that simply gives up (like my Kindle which died of a blank screen) and forces me to buy a new device? Any help would be greatly appreciated.... Phil

    Welcome to the forum

    A few things you didn't try or didn't mention. Have you checked for a firmware update in the router? Have you tried to connect when the security in the router was disabled? Have you tried another WiFi somewhere?

    Hi Phil,

    welcome to the forums.

    Check the time and date on your tab, and make sure that that is set correctly. If the time/date is off, most of the internet-enabled apps will have weird issues.
