    Nexus 7 Tablet detecting wifi internet, not connecting

    My airplane mode is off and wifi detector is on....it sees my home network, allows me to put in the password, tells me it is 'Saved and Secured with WPA-2'...when I click Connect, it reads 'Connecting...' then drops back to 'Saved and Secured with WPA-2'.

    I've restarted, checked that battery booster is not interfering, forgotten the network and reconnected- no bars, no internet. Pages read 'Error 106', no connection. Any ideas about this one?

    Have you tried reboot the router?

    Rebooting the router sounds like a good start. Have u tried connecting somewhere else just to see if it is your home network that is the issue?

    I'm slow. Today we flipped the fuse to the upper section of our house (where the router is- off limits or would have tried earlier...) and that worked perfectly. A bit inexplicable why the router still allowed my Dell to connect but no other devices, like the tablet, but it all worked out.

    Moral of the story is to always restart things before panicking!

    Well what kind of router do you have? Meaning model. I have noticed netgear one you have to reboot it once a month...

    I have a similar problem with a dual band Linksys WRT610N-EU. Every time I engage flight mode or shut down the tablet (full shutdown, not a screen lock), I lose connection to my wifi network. The network is visible with excellent signal, I see it in the Wifi Analyzer app, but when I try to connect, it flashes 'Connecting' briefly and then returns to 'Saved and Secured with WPA-2'. Nothing works to get it to connect: rebooting the Nexus 7, forgetting the network and disabling and re-enabling wifi all have no effect. At the same time, my Galaxy S2 phone (ICS 4.03) has no trouble connecting at all. What does work is pulling the plug on my router. As soon as it finishes rebooting, the Nexus 7 will connect flawlessly 100% of the time without me even lifting a finger.
