  1. While visiting a family member . . .

    My inexpensive "Supersonic" SC-75JB 7"wi-fi tablet will not recognize ("see") his wi-fi transmitter ID, even within a few feet of it. The tablet is 802.11b/g/n capable.

    This wireless router IS recognized by two smartphones, the netbook I'm typing on right now, and a Nook HD+, all of which are also wi-fi enabled. They "see" its ID without delay. The router is password-protected, but since the tablet can't "see" the router, there's no option to input a password.

    This tablet has always connected to any nearby wi-fi without difficulty, so this seems to be very out-of-the-ordinary.

    I've done the usual, rebooting, doublechecking all settings, etc.

    While I may be overlooking the obvious, I can't see it.

    Any ideas?

    Can you add a ssid manually to your tablet and input the p/w?I had to manually add in my routers ssid to my pc because it never saw the ssid of the router,after doing this it would connect and get online.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

    On. Tablet "sees" various SSIDs, but not this one.

    Did that, but tablet shows that SSID as "not in range" even though I'm standing just a few feet away..

    Will do when I can connect the tablet to the internet.

    Thanks for the suggestions. 'Tis an oddity!

    you could ask him to change the channel the router is operating on. try something like 6 which is in the range all devices can use.

    Nephew who set up the system isn't available awhile and I would not presume to make such a change without his presence. This is certainly not a critical problem, just an oddity I've never seen before.

    Since the tablet is a low-priced one, this may be a case of getting the quality (or lack thereof) I paid for, altho it has been a decent unit for several months (not wild about battery life, tho).
