Resolved Question

My Browser will not browse!

by retreaded / September 17, 2011 7:24 AM PDT

I have a Samsung Galaxy 7 inch tab model gt-p1000.. I like it but my browser is not browsing.
It tells me that websites are not available.
It indicates that I am connected to my Wi Fi, and all seems OK that end.
I am wondering if I can re-install the browser off Samsung in some way. It is not available on Sansung Apps, nor Android Market.
This means that I cannot download it off the WWW and my browser will not access the Web.
Any clues, please?

I have seen this happen with WEP wifi routers. Try WPA2 AES next.

I'd have to call the unit dead or pilot error. Can't tell with the detail so far.

Some internet sites cannot be viewed on some devices. For instance, an iPad cannot access sites that use Adobe Flash. Can you access any internet sites ??

Sadly, it will not. It will download from Samsung Apps and Android Market, but nothing on the www. Incidentally, my Samsung s2 is faultless in that regard. I have duplicated the settings on he tab but to no avail.Igive your response the humbs up as and suggestions are welcome and I appreciate the troubkle people will go to.
