I was recently given a Coby Kyros Model Number MD1042. I cannot for the life of me get this thing to connect to my wifi. My router is an Arris TG862G supplied to me by Comcast. I am certain that the Wifi configuration on the router is correct, since I have no difficulty in connecting to the Internet with my laptop. All software and firmware for the router are current. The signal strength indicator on the tablet shows my connection, and says that the signal strength is excellent. I've tried everything I can think of. It is of interest to note that my Wifi requires a password, but the tablet does not prompt for one when I try to connect. I am in range of someone else's Wifi, and as an experiment, I tried to connect. I was immediately prompted to enter a password.
I cannot seem to locate a user manual for the tablet anywhere. The user manual for my router can be found here:
Any help that someone could provide will be greatly appreciated.
