Hi guys..

Its the same old problem with this tablet. I have mentioned about it in another thread as well. My GS2 and GS3 connects to my wifi without any troubles but this buggy bastard from Sammy doesnt even detect it. I managed to get it working by changing modes of wifi but it stopped again.

Please guys help me. Anyone else having this problem? please comment.

Hm wifi is perfect with mine. Have tried the app wifi analyzer to check the strength and channel overlapping of your wifi?

Here's Wi-Fi tests from my N3 and N10.1-14. In actual use both are very good performance wise and always find and hold a specified connection. The N10.1-14 actually performs a bit better than the N3.

N10.1-14

But Sammy still screwed the pooch with wifi... Their older phones have better wifi reception than their newest offerings.... Is pretty piss poor quality control....

Are you sure? I thought mine was failing to detect wifi but it was just that the firmware was looking for the wrong channels as I switched to ML1. When I changed the channels on my router it was fine again. Channels aside, it detects the same networks as my Note II pretty much everywhere I've tried.

The thing is that I can only test it when the tablet will be able to detect these networks. Mine detects for few others but not my home one. Another thing is that I could have accepted everything about the router, channels etc if my GS2 and GS3 were failing to detect as well.
