Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Before we proceed with any troubleshooting,please once unplug your router from the wall outlet wait for 2 minutes and plug it back in.
Let me know when this is done.

I get that, it just don't recognize your WiFi alone.

Did you try changing channels on your router?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. I'm concerned that it will impact the rest of my devices.

How do I change channels on my router?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
All the other devices are accessing the router fine. My tablet shows a strong WiFi signal but will not connect. In my about section it says that my ip address in unavailable.
Android Device Expert: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 7 months ago

No that will not.

You got to login into the settings page of your router in order to do that.

Are you aware of your user credentials to your router?

My router is working fine for all other devices. It is my TABLET that is the issue.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My acer tablet
Android Device Expert: Suhasini Velu,

I understand that, but this is the one option I would highly recommend to you to change on the router.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I do not understand how to do it. We only have the physical router plugged to our wall. You said to "go to the settings page" of our router. How is that done?
Android Device Expert: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 7 months ago

You mentioned your router is cisco, what is the model number of the router?

Do you mean my tablet ip address? Or the laptop that is still able to connect to the Internet?
Android Device Expert: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
can you please give me some more information. We have been in correspondance for more than one and a half hours and still nothing. i am not able to devote my entire day to this. This is not what i was led to believe would happen for $51.
Android Device Expert: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 7 months ago

I am sorry, this is what I would recommend.

And to further troubleshoot I believe it would be much easier if I take remote.

But am going to opt out of this and open this to other experts.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what is it that you recommend? i believe we have tried everything asked of us.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
why has the previous expert opted out of helping us further?????
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i am deeply disappointed with this. This cost us a total of $56 and all i have been given is advice about my router which is currntly working perfectly. After being asked to give my gateway and ip address i waited 30 minutes to be asked to then put that info into a browser bar. 30 minutes!
