I got a new android tablet PC yesterday, and it connected to the internet immediately I entered the passphrase for my Virgin modem.
Today when I switched it on it would NOT connect: I just get a "Webpage not available" message. I have tried switching off and on several times: no difference.
I have checked the WiFi settings, which give a MAC address, but for IP settings it states "Unavailable".
My laptop's WiFi connection works fine, so the problem is only with the tablet PC.
I have tried to access my Virgin Super Hub to see if there was something there that might need changing, but for some reason http://192.168.0.1 doesn't work - that's another mystery!
I repeat that the android PC connected fine yesterday, straight away - but today it constantly refuses: can anyone provide a solution to this most annoying problem?

Well, this is what I do:
(1) I go to the existing connection and click "Forget".
(2) When I then click my Virginmedia connection again on the screen, I have to fill in the password again, and then save it.
(3) The screen then says, as it did originally: Virginmedia (etc) - Saved, secured with WPA2. So I'm just back where I started: I can click on "Connect", but nothing happens - it still doesn't connect!
