    Nook Tablet Won't Connect To Internet

      My Nook Tablet's (bought in late December) internet has not been working since I brought it to Boca's Barnes and Noble. I didn't take my Nook with me in the store, but I took it out in the parking lot to show my aunt it. Then I just brought it back to the car and drove home. The internet from B&N was working fine, but since I've got home two days ago, my Nook won't re-connect to the internet. The strange thing is that it every thing else in the house has perfect wifi. It says that it has a DCHP (something like that) problem and to re-star the internet router.

       

      I haven't tried that yet, but I'm going to once my dad gets home (I have a knack for screwing things up or breaking things). I'm wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else or if I need to go to my local B&N to get it fixed . . .

       

      Thanks. =)

          Please help!  Just bought my Nook, now I can't get it to connect to my internet.

            I had the same problem with mine, you have to download the 1.4.1 upgrade for the nook tablet. Once I did that it fixed the problem.

              I had the same problem.  I unplugged the wireless router for about a minute and plugged it back in.  That fixed the problem.

                I am at a loss - as of today my Nook HD is not connecting to the internet - All I can connect to is B&N's site and within it .... the browser search engine does not work.  The chat support suggested resetting the modem which did not work .... the rest of the computers in the house all function well.  Called the provider to see if there were site maintanance or outages of some sort and they reset the modem as well.  Still does not connect.

                The really concerning part is that I was given a new Nook HD+ at Xmas and it failed within 14 days, returned and got another new one.  The second new one had problems by day 3, it could not get mail and was told to deregister and reregister it.  Now about a week after I got it I cannot connect to the net.  I was going to get a Nook for my husband on his birthday yet he thinks they aren't worth the money.

                Does anyone know just why the device won't connect to the internet?  I have verified the Wi-Fi settings, and anything that is in the system.  I don't know what I am missing .... or if the device has a failure.

                Any ideas?

                    What are your Nook's settings and what are your wireless router's settings?

                     

                    Does doing any of the following help

                     

                    1) 'Forget' the wireless connection. Restart. then enter password and log into wifi connection again.

                     

                    2) Restart by pressing Power button and physical n button (the one below the screen) for 30 seconds.

                     

                    3) Turning router off, waiting 60 seconds, then turning it on.

                     

                    4) Stealing your sister's Nook and replacing it with yours.

                          Try a reboot (long-press power) or try another browser perhaps?
