Rebooting or powercycling a device is always worth a try. Smiley Happy Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

Neither.  The OP is referring to a different type of issue.

I don't know exactly what the OP is referring to, as in actual IP address or IP Gateway Association State, but if your other devices are able to connect, it's most likely a settings issue that is not allowing your Android based tablet to connect.  

 

It won't hurt anything to power cycle the HT2000W modem (unplug it at the outlet, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in), but I don't know that it will help.  You can always try.  

 

Edit:  Sorry, I'm getting your issue mixed up with another.  You didn't sate you had any other devices.

I already tried shutting it down and it didn't help.

See, I truly am getting you mixed up with someone else.  You DID say that you had other devices, the other person didn't.  SMH.  It's been a long day.   

 

Anyway, I didn't think it would help, but, if the laptop has the ability to connect with a LAN cable, you can make the security settings adjustments mentioned in the other thread with that.  Or, you can try doing it with the laptop while connected through WiFi, but it would be best to do it while LAN connected if you have that ability.
