I can't get the M001 to connect to a Westell 327W DSL Gateway. It 'sees' the network, checks for IP Address, but will not connect! The machine connects just fine to a Linksys router.Any suggestions?

The machine connects just fine to a Linksys router.Any suggestions?[/QUOTE'] I am having a similar problem. My M001 was connecting fine to my Linksys DD-WRT v24sp2 router. It worked for months. Then the power supply died (on the M001 natch) and I waited a week to get a replacement. When I got it, everything was good, the wifi did work for a few minutes, then all of a sudden it refuses to connect to my main wifi network. Similar to yours, it sees it, tries to get an address and fails.I tried it with a different open network briefly and it seemed to work.

I had similar problem.If the device finds the network & you are sure you have the correct password, get as close to the modem as you can & keep trying.I took 4 or 5 attemps to get mine to connect. Once you have been connected, you can then re-connect from further away.

I also have a WIFI issue, the apad will scan and find networks (sometimes), occasionally connect to my router, if i'm lucky i get a few minutes of 'online' time to update my mail or download something from the market but then it disconnects again. Most of the time i just get 'disconnected' though, and no connection possible. I fear that there might be a hardware problem, a bad connection or something, but I dread opening up the apad, since it will leave cosmetic marks, but if it can be solved by ie. resoldering some wires then I have no problem with it. Anyone has an idea about the hardware configuration and if my feeling could be correct? If it is a software issue, i don't know where to start looking, but all tips and tricks are welcome!!rockchip apad with RB 5.1 (also tried RB6)

This makes no sense, but this just worked for me.I had my router set to Mixed (which means 802.11b/g/n). I changed it to BG-Mixed (802.11b/g) and the Eken started working! That shouldn't matter, Mixed should be backwards compatible to b/g.I also added a static address in the DHCP table. That could have been it as well.
