[Q] Wifi Networks Do Not Display
As usual, I am experiencing a very strange problem. My GT7510 is currenty running the Task "beginning" ICS ROM. It works great when I am at home. When I go on the road, I sometimes experience a problem where nearby open WIFI networks that I know are working do not display on my Tab. I can connect to these networks on my laptop, iPhone or my wife's iPad but they are invisible on my Tab.
The latest occurance was at a hotel that offered free WIFI. In order to access the network, I first have to open a browser and provide an access code. This is easily done on the other devices but since I cannot even see the network on my Tab, I cannot connect so the browser can give me the login page.
I have Googled the problem until my fingers are ready to bleed but have not found anyone with the same problem. Does anyone have any thoughts on what could be going on?.
Now, having posted this problem, I can tell you that I stumbled on a work-around but I have no idea why it works. Just for fun, I activated the "personal hotspot" on my Jailbroken iPhone. This signal immediately showed up on my Tab. At the same time, the hotel signal suddenly appeared as well and I was able to connect to that signal.
I am hopeful that someone can shed some light on this strange problem for me. Thanks in advance.
