    I have an Asus TF101 Tranformer android tablet. How do I tell what wireless signal it uses? In the settings, About tablet, it just shows that the wi-fi version is V6.1.1.24 and the Android version is 4.0.3 - not very helpful.

    There's a wireless router outside my office in the ceiling. My IT person says it's working, but I am not finding it. He asked what signal - a/b/g/n?

    Suggestions?

    Thanks

    Here, if that is your tablet, it says "Wireless 802.11bgn."

    Is your Wi-Fi (don't know which terminology is used) enabled, turned on, or "Airplane Mode" off?

    My airplane mode is unchecked. That looks like my tablet.

    Someone told me the IT guy was down here yesterday with a tablet - probably an ipad - proving that wifi worked. sigh

    All I'm seeing is an HP thing and that's probably a printer. Nothing happens when I try to connect to it. I don't remember what brand the router is but it's not HP - I saw it when I had a different guy rooting around the ceiling tiles to look to see if it was connected. It is.

    See if you can detect another Wi-Fi network--McDonald's, library, neighbor's, etc.
