Got a new Dell Streak 7 Android 2.2 Wi-Fi tablet. Using the default security settings, it won't connect unless I disable the security. I tried each all of the different protocols also, same results.
Android 3.2, the latest for tabs is supposed to have improved Wi-Fi. I got the OTA notification for that and downloaded/installed it but get the same exact results. Android 3.2 does include DCHP and Proxy options, something I know nothing about.
I'll be going to a relative's home tomorrow who has a Wi-Fi system setup using whatever hardware and Comcast. We'll see how/if it works there.
BTW: The upgrade to Android 3.2 was scary since some have ended up with a useless paperweight afterwords or non-working buttons!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Got it! How dumb? The tab asked for the password, so entered the RG's password but what it really means is the Wireless Network Key. It connected right up then.

Glad you figured it out.
To make your connection even more secure, change the default password on the RGs sticker to something you can remember easily, but still secure.

Yes, they should use the same terms as not to confuse the ignorant like me! Do you mean Password or the Wireless Network Key? Not sure what can/can't be changed.
