    I don't claim to know anything about the tablet, but this dance often works with computers ...

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    Login to the router (preferably using an ethernet connection), navigate to the wireless section and set the Encryption (or Security) Mode to 'none' or 'off' or similar. Consult the router user guide for more specifics.
