    Intermittent wifi

    I've browsed the site a little and have noticed a lot of people are having issues with their thrive and wifi. However, although I'm sure there are posts with the exact same issue as mine, I couldn't see any at a quick glance.I got this tablet as a gift (had asked for a Samsung, got a Thrive... considering the issues with wifi I am genuinely disappointed). Since September, the wifi has been working intermittently, apparently whenever it feels like working. No router settings have changed, my distance from the router hasn't changed, but randomly and apparently without reason, the tablet seems to either say the router is out of range or it will connect to the wifi but won't let me access the internet. This is infuriating.Any suggestions?

    Have you tried forgetting the connection and re-establishing it?
    Have you tried rebooting the router?

    It's a quirk built into the last Toshiba build. Try turning off & then turning back on WiFi on the THRiVE. A router reboot may help as well.
    Found my signature file, but it appears to be empty...

    It started working randomly after about 40 minutes of turning off and on. Tried turning router off and on also with no success. There appears to be no pattern to it. So frustrating!

    Can you get a reliable connection anywhere? Try public hot-spots...
